Visual Arts (K-12)

A comprehensive art curriculum will actively engage students in their own learning to develop concepts and skills through sensory awareness, aesthetic discrimination and authentic production tasks. “Individuals who participate in an effective visual arts program develop visual thinking abilities and analytic and expressive abilities that result in a high level of functioning in academic areas such as mathematics, sciences, social sciences, and language arts. (Visual Art instruction) serves as an excellent model for approaches to creative problem-solving that mark the educated person.”1
