Visual Art

Visual Art allows one to express ideas by 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional means. As students view art, talk about art and create art, they begin to find the language allowed through various medium.  Whether abstract, realistic, fanciful or simple, students are able to think critically and creatively about what they wish to communicate.

"Every child is born an artist. The problem is how to remain so once you grow up." (Picasso)

What might this mean for teachers? What do we see as our job when teaching the arts?
