Structured learning situations include the exposure to and application of a wide variety of media, techniques, and processes are essential parts of the visual and performing arts education instructional programs.
Art education contributes to the intellectual, social and emotional growth of every child, and the fine arts curriculum is designed to develop the unique mental capabilities which foster flexible, original, divergent, fluent, creative and imaginative thinking. While art enhances learning in all subject areas by providing auditory, visual and sensory experiences, art has intrinsic value and is worth learning for its own sake. The department of curriculum and instruction aims for a comprehensive program which fosters the creative potential of every learner.
