Students at Central Intermediate will be taking a general visual arts class that will introduce to new materials and techniques. Students attend class once a week for 40 minutes. Completed art is displayed in the classrooms and throughout our buildings as well. All students also participate in our districts annual Fine Arts Festival held the first week of May.
Our goal for art education is to expand students’ knowledge in the visual arts through lecture, presentation, and application.
Here at OES we follow the Illinois state standards:
The visual arts class generally does not have homework due to most materials not being able to take out of the room. If a student needs more time we allow the students to come down to the art room first thing in the morning right off the bus during DEAR time. This allows the student who needs more time or has been absent to catch up.
