The Art Program is directed toward the student as both consumer and producer. Assisted by films, slides, visuals, field trips and discussions, units exploring line, shape, tone, color and texture are explored through a variety of media. Emphasis is on an awareness of natural and man-made environments. Expression through art provides development in understanding of oneself.
