Visual Art POS 2017-18 webversion.docx

The Visual Art Department offers a variety of courses to our students each year. Freshmen can elect Art 1, TV 1 or Multimedia Presentation. Art 1 & Art 2 or TV 1 & TV 2 are the prerequisites for most advanced classes.

‘Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence,’ sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz has said.¬†Arts education, on the other hand, does solve problems. Years of research show that it is closely linked to almost everything that we as a nation say we want for our children and demand from our schools:

academic achievement,
social and emotional development,
civic engagement,
and equitable opportunity.
