The Art Department provides a variety of experiences and challenges, teaching students new skills and raising their awareness of the world around them. Participation in the Arts encourages increased visual perception, awareness of one's surroundings and promotes personal involvement in one's education. In all art classes, students study written and visual resources and maintain a portfolio/body of work. Introductory and Advanced studio art courses are offered. Students work in both 2D and 3D media and have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in local and statewide exhibits. The Arts are part of the Core Curriculum as outlined in the Common Core of Learning.

Students are required to meet RI State Proficiency in the Arts.

Visual Arts education students: 

  • perceive and understand visual and aesthetic relationships in the environment.

  • produce expressive works of art and discover the specific qualities of different art materials and how to use them.

  • learn to express feelings, experiences and ideas that they find meaningful.

  • acquire knowledge of the history of Art and Design.

  • evaluate works of art and make intelligent visual aesthetic judgments.
