“How important are the visual arts in our society? 
I feel strongly that the visual arts are of a vast and 
incalculable importance. Of course I could be prejudiced. 
am a visual art.
                                                        — Kermit the Frog

The Art Department at Northampton Area School District is committed 
to providing a fun and complex creative journey for each child from Kindergarten 
through twelfth grade. As a department, we feel that creativity is an important 
component of your child's future. Studies have revealed that students who engage 
in creative endeavors are better able to problem-solve on a higher level 
(regardless of the subject matter) than those whom do not. Companies are hiring 
more and more employees with creative backgrounds to be project managers and 
oversee large projects of all kinds due to this advanced ability to problem-solve 
and find "out of the box" solutions.

Art is no longer a side-show, make it the main attraction 
in your child's future path to success

Don't miss the show!
