High School Visual Arts

  • The ability to think aesthetically, applied across the board, can make a substantial difference in the quality of life.  That is why the arts are not the domain of the privileged, the rich, or the talented but belong to us all. - Charles Fowler, Great Arts, Great Schools, 1996

    When students can exhibit and perform creative applications of knowledge, then learning has taken place. Art is a discipline that teaches students to see by training their eyes. Art also helps students understand different cultures throughout history and enables them to express themselves and their own culture. The discipline of art involves teaching students how to create art using materials and principles of art as well as art history and art criticism.

    Graduation Requirement:  Students must successfully complete at least 20 credits in the visual and performing arts (Art, Music, and/or Theater courses).
