Art Department

Through the study of art, students are challenged to become independent thinkers to foster their creative minds. Our goal as a Visual Art department is to promote visual literacy using critical thinking and problem solving skills. These skills help students deepen their understanding of themselves while developing awareness of others and the world around them. Our teaching methodology focuses on process, experimentation, and the appreciation of art. Students are encouraged to experience creating through risk taking and the application of 21st century skills.
