The NR Art Department’s philosophy embraces building and enhancing formal 
art skills and techniques while remaining dedicated to experimentation, intellectual engagement, while celebrating the individual expressive 
voice. Our art courses offer the opportunity to explore new methods and develop visual perception and critical, analytical skills that apply to the arts and in everyday life.  As part of the Art Department, both the students and teachers, form a supportive environment that encourages and supports creative problem solving, risk-taking, and decision-making.
