Art

The art program is designed to help students:

  1. Realize that each individual’s ideas are of value because they are tangible results of personal experience.
  2. Produce and recognize the value of his/her own imaginative and inventive works of art while becoming aware of his/her artistic talent and its needs for further development.
  3. Progress students through a sequentially developed curriculum moving from level to level in such a way that maximum growth is attained by building on prior learning.
  4. Develop independent thinking by planning and executing his/her own ideas for truly creative expression instead of copy work.
