Art Education is alive, well and flourishing under the guidance of our art educators.
Under these capable educators the k-12 art curriculum has been updated and revised to provide a variety of visual art experiences including technology as it relates to art. The students are taught that “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” – Edgar Degas. And when you view their incredible art you know they have truly learned this concept. At the top of the webpage please see a few examples of how our students see our world in new ways. I guarantee these images will make you smile. These are just a few samples. I hope you will….
