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.
We believe learners will...
- Create works of art through problem solving and innovative thinking using a variety of art media and techniques.
- Present and communicate ideas and personal expressions through artwork.
- Respond to and interpret artwork from a variety of cultural, historical and stylistic contexts.
- Connect to the global community through an appreciation of the visual arts.
