Visual Art Department

 

Mission Statement


The mission of the Wilson School District Art Department is to ensure that all students at every developmental level experience creative, academic, and social growth through the visual arts. 

 

Art Department Philosophy

 

Art is a human endeavor that reveals all that we have learned about life, culture,
technology, and ourselves. Through art, we come to perceive and understand our
world. Art education allows us to teach our children the importance, purposes,
and possibilities of art.

The art education program is designed to help students connect with the enduring ideas
about art and the human experience.  People have made art throughout time allowing
civilizations to identify 
with their culture, understand their experiences, expressing
their own thoughts 
and feelings, solving problems and find creative solutions. We aim to provide students with an appreciation of the art that has been made before us, the
contextual situations that impact art production in the past and present, and
the multitude of reasons that people across the globe and through time have
communicated visually through art.


The goals of art education in the Wilson School District are to assist each student to:
