PROGRAM: The secondary art program provides opportunities for students to participate in independent and self-directed learning experiences in a studio environment. All secondary art classes emphasize visual problem solving, independent decision making, risk taking and creative and critical thinking. Students are expected to improve upon work through self-reflection and critique and convey artistic intent from creator to viewer. Student growth is evaluated through the emergence of technical competence, manipulation of original ideas, work that has purpose and direction, proper care and maintenance of art supplies, and a sense of real effort to work to personal best.
