Visual Arts

  • About

    The study of art in NEISD is a high quality program for elementary and secondary schools. Our goal is for students to develop a personal voice through art-making; their artwork reflecting the solving of a creative challenge.

    Students will understand why they make art rather than just what they are making or how they are making it. This initiates learning at a higher level and enhances learning in other content areas. Student artists are guided 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.
