The arts curriculum promotes visual literacy while providing an opportunity for students to discover their own unique style, artistic impression, and creativity. Designated art rooms and expert art instructors provide settings that allow students a venue for creative exploration. Students learn to draw and paint, in addition to learning about master artists, artistic techniques and styles, and art vocabulary. These core skills help improve artistic capabilities and provide the necessary background for students to formulate and express opinions about their own work, their peers’ work, and the work of the masters.
