The High School Fine Arts students have freedom to explore the diverse world of visual arts through a variety of media.  Depth of study is enriched through studies in art heritage, conceptual visualization, and advanced principles of art and design. Students work toward drawing mastery with a variety of challenging subjects, and explore creative visual communication. They develop technical and problem-solving skills while engaged in the mental and physical process of generating new ideas, interpreting thoughts, analyzing perceptions, synthesizing their knowledge base, and evaluating information to express their thoughts and feelings for others to see. Students are stretched to create artwork with excellent breadth showing quality in line, shape composition, tone, dimensional space, volume, form and depth. Student generated philosophical and descriptive statements accompany each artwork to validate the visual expression and enrich the viewer’s experience.
