    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:
