Formerly disengaged students in a public high school work independently in a supportive, collaborative environment in a program called "Pathways: Another Way to Graduate."




Visual Art Stories


Quick Look:

Intermediate art students study, research and write about the history of drawing and painting, and the basic elements and principles of art and design. They learn about Western Art from the Renaissance to 20th Century Modernists, and create works of art using pencil, charcoal, dry paste, watercolor and oil paints. They examine the connection between the artists’ beliefs, values and art and consider how they can convey their own beliefs, values, culture and experiences through a visual medium.
