The Visual Arts Department provides the students in Grades K-12 with a curriculum that allows students to develop personal expression, engage their imaginations, follow their intuition, make choices, and reflect on the outcomes through visual imagery. Students develop artistic skills, observational skills, critical thinking skills, as well as an appreciation of the arts and their importance in all cultures.
Visual Arts Program Review
Every curriculum and program area is involved in a continuous Program Review process. Phase I and Phase II of Program Review include an examination of the current state of the program/curriculum area and the development of an action plan for program improvement. Implementation of the action plan and on-going data gathering are the work of Phase III/IV. Links to Phase I and II reports and presentations to the School Committee are provided below.
