The elementary art curriculum provides to all students a well-sequenced program of developmentally appropriate art experiences
in five major areas: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Three-Dimensional Design, and Two-Dimensional Design.
Students are involved in activities which are culturally balanced and integrated with study in language arts,
social studies, mathematics, and science. A variety of strategies is used to enable students to construct
meaning, investigate, make decisions, and solve problems creatively. The comprehensive elementary art curriculum
enhances the students' total educational experience.
The middle school art curriculum is designed to provide all adolescents with opportunities for sequential instruction in
this subject. Art activities are provided in five major areas: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Three-Dimensional
Design and Lettering. Within one or more of these five areas, a Student Service Learning activity may also
be experienced, in conjunction with team initiatives. The middle school art program extends elementary learning,
enables selected skills to be refined, and provides opportunities for unique and individual applications.

the career path selected. The correct sequence of curricula provides for appropriate preparation and maximum
success. All high school art courses provide opportunities for students to refine and apply learned skills
and concepts and to develop personally and creatively as visually literate young adults.
