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.
We will be participating in a couple of art shows next spring. The Air Academy Federal Credit Union is a scholarship based contest that will be held in March or April 2015.The Young People Arts Show is an opportunity for us to showcase the talent of 12 of our students at the Citadel Mall at the Imagination Celebration.
