fine arts - art
The study of art in North East Independent School District is a high quality program for elementary and secondary schools. Our goal is to guide students in their personal discovery of the visual arts through the study of art and artists of different cultures and periods. Participating in art activities and studies will help students gain an understanding of self, others, and the environment. Through art education students develop visual literacy, increase critical and creative thinking processes that help them articulate and solve problems in a variety of ways, and learn to view art as a reflection of society.
The Visual Arts Staff consists of 95 Art Educators. There are 51 Secondary Art Teachers, 44 Elementary Campus Art Coordinators, one Elementary Art Specialist and one Visual Art Director.
More than 2,000 students are enrolled in middle school art classes, over 3,000 in high school art classes, and 90 in the North East School of the Arts.
