“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.
I 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!
