Visual Arts Curriculum

In art classes we build our art knowledge by learning the elements of art. These are the "building blocks" that artists use to create artwork. We use the elements to implement the principles of art within our art. The art curriculum is written using the district, state and national visual art standards. The art program integrates with classroom curriculum as much as possible. The program provides opportunities to study a variety of artists, art processes and experiences in individual creative exploration. It is important for students to recognize the overlapping connections between subject areas.
