Arts created primarily for visual perception, as drawing, graphics, painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts.

Our visual arts curriculum makes valuable connections to the individual, to society and to culture. The growing complexity of our contemporary culture requires of every individual a capacity for visual analysis and critique. In the production and contemplation of artworks, we can understand ourselves and the world around us. Learning through the visual arts develops creative problem-solving skills as students face issues that often have multiple solutions. Art brings individuals together to share feelings, beliefs and values and develop a sense of community.
