Visual Arts

While art is woven into the curriculum throughout all grades, our middle school students are fortunate to receive two lessons each week that are dedicated entirely to Visual Arts. Led by art instructor Gaylen Corbett, students follow a progressive curriculum to strengthen their drawing and painting skills. Visual Arts lessons are coordinated with main lesson subjects to form a bridge between art and academics.
