Students attend weekly art classes, where they receive hands-on instruction in a wide range of art media and explore choices involved in presenting art to an audience.

Our visual arts venue gives students an opportunity to look closely at themselves, to examine the world around them, and to understand connections between artistic expression and cultural values.
