South High School: Visual Arts

Our Mission: 

To support and engage students in the arts to better prepare them to be “out of the box thinkers”, idea generators, problem solvers and empathetic citizens of the larger community.

We Believe:
Through the arts, students develop visual communication skills, strengthen their sense of identity, and gain confidence to embrace the responsibility for their own learning and lives.
In our classes:
Students will develop knowledge and understanding of the art forms, media, techniques and processes.
Students will demonstrate high order thinking through, planning and refining their ideas and creating solutions to artistic problems.
Students will practice good studio habits.
Students will create artworks that express their ideas, knowledge and acquired skills and techniques.
Students will be introduced to and incorporate art from a variety of cultures, styles and forms.
