Welcome to the Sylvan Unified School District's Art department! Instruction in visual arts provides developmentally appropriate methods of exploring, creating, and learning about the arts. In these classes, students learn self-expression, creativity, aesthetic awareness, teamwork, self-discipline, and develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. Sylvan  believes the visual arts are an integral part of the human experience and have roots in every culture and historical period throughout the world. Visual art provides students an immediate picture of an era and its people. Knowledge of the cultural and historical context of visual art helps students recognize connections among all aspects of living and learning. Through the visual arts students are provided an opportunity to discover, develop, and actualize their unique potential. The visual arts assist students in developing the many facets of multiple intelligences while providing meaningful learning opportunities and the development of critical and creative thinking.
