Visual Arts

Visual Arts

Today more than ever art is needed by our young people as a forum for safe expression, communication, exploration, imagination, and cultural and historical understanding. A strong arts education promotes the skills children need to be successful. Exposure to art education promotes self-directed learning and sharpens critical as well as creative skills.

Simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation as they grow up. Drawing, sculpting with clay and threading beads on a string all develop visual-spatial skills.

Art Exhibitions

In a community as diverse as ours, the arts serve as an essential bridge across language and cultural differences. They become the shared link, the glue that shapes our understanding of how we see ourselves and one another. Exhibitions of student's art work motivate them and also succeed in influencing the public's understanding of art work made by children.
