Visual Arts

The visual arts can create a positive learning environment where students have the opportunity to express their own ideas, imagination, and creativity. Students are able to develop different ways of thinking and look at the world from a different perspective. Art instruction helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness. Visual arts teach learners about color, layout, perspective, and balance: all techniques that are necessary in presentations (visual, digital) of academic work.
