Visual problem solving is a process that engages students on many levels, including making direct and tangible links with what they are studying in other subjects. Students will strive to find answers by exercising critical thinking skills and improving technical skills, while also being encouraged to reach new levels of understanding, expand imaginative thought, and increase their willingness to take risks. All students are encouraged to participate in the Visual Arts program. Students interested in Visual Arts, are required to begin this process with Introduction to Art. It is highly recommended that students planning to pursue a Visual Arts career take a sequence of advanced art classes, which will prepare them for college portfolio presentations. All courses culminate with a final exam.
