Fundamental to the development of fine art is the spirit and process of exploration. The Art curriculum encourages the process of discovery as it applies to perceptual and conceptual issues basic to the creative process as well as the human experience. The purpose is to provide a catalyst for students to expand their life skill set through artistic awareness and practice resulting in a more productive, versatile and successful life.
