Through the Arts, children build cognitive, perceptual, and
analytical abilities.
In the process, they also gain a heightened sensitibity , understanding,
and respect for themselves and their diverse community.

The Art Department teachers believe that art is a universal language and a discipline that should be taught to all students. We believe in a hands -on approach to art in a sequential curriculum. The creative process is an important tool to use to become a successful contributor in the world outside of school.
 
Our goal is to have our student's experience a multitude of media and techniques, using a variety of tools and processes.
