The art program is designed to interest students in artistic activities that have a practical value in their own lives, and that encourage them to think and behave as artists. We believe that all students are capable of high quality creative work, and that they can generate ideas and develop techniques within their visual field. Through exploration, they will evolve a visual vocabulary to enable them to express their thoughts and feelings. They will also be encouraged to develop verbal communication skills that will help them understand, discuss and cherish art forms. Students will complete required projects that encourage personal vision; they will also do independent work.
