Welcome to the Visual Arts Department!
Art is important to the development of all people. It provides a link to the past and propels us into the future.
Earth without "art" is just "eh"...
Art at SKHS encourages imagination.
We show students how they might express their own feelings and experiences through painting and drawing. We provide our students an opportunity to create and do, training the eyes to guide the hands and the mind.
Art is more than just creating.
Art teaches students how to interpret different forms of communication. It teaches them to understand figurative things like symbolism, metaphor, and the meanings of color.
And evidence suggests… Art improves academic achievement!
Students who actively participate in some form of art — whether it be painting, acting, music, etc. — perform better in other subjects than students who don't participate in art.
