Where Children Are Cherished And Challenged
Visual Arts at
Art is a semester course designed to give students a well-rounded art education based on the four parts of Discipline-Based Art Education (in no specific order):
1) Art Production
2) Art History
3) Art Criticism/Analysis, and
4) Aesthetic Awareness.
Not only do students need to learn how to create artwork, but it is equally important that they study a diverse range of artists from throughout history. When describing, analyzing, interpreting, and evaluating the work of others, an artist improves his/her/their personal artwork. The goal of this course is to broaden students’ understanding and appreciation of art media, art movements and artists in order to have a greater awareness of the world around them.
