Visual Art


The ISD 728 Visual Arts Program provides comprehensive hands-on K-12 arts education, a vital component of every child's core education. Visual arts experiences cultivate creative expression, innovative thinking and problem solving while valuing all dimensions of each student. All learners will develop and apply essential 21st Century skills within and beyond a challenging curriculum. Art education supports artistic exploration and collaboration as students create, present, respond and connect in a global community.
