Visual Arts

What is Visual Arts Education?

Visual Arts programs are an integral part of the core curriculum offered at every K-12 Jeffco public school. Jeffco Schools provide high quality instruction, emphasizing a balance of studio art (creating), critique and analysis, and art history. The curriculum students receive is based on the Colorado Academic Standards - Visual Arts, in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, digital media, sculpture, and ceramics.

Why Visual Arts Education?

Visual Arts are essential. They teach students innumerable lessons - practice makes perfect, small differences can have large effects, collaboration leads to creativity. Visual arts also teach children that there are several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution.

 

"Research has also shown impressive benefits of arts education on entire school culture - especially student motivation, attitudes, and attendance. Numerous reports discuss the ways that increased access and involvement in arts education encourage students to stay in school, succeed in school, succeed in live, and succeed in work." (National Art Education Association)
