Visual Arts: The visual arts program follows a spiraling curriculum, exposing students to various artistic materials and methods while encouraging creative thought and expression. The arts serve as an important means of addressing critical thinking and process: Making a sculpture helps to develop problem solving skills; drawing not only exercises fine motor skills but highlights concepts of symbolism and imagery. Students are given skills to create the work as well as taught how artists take an idea to theā€ fruition of an artistic product.
