VISUAL EXPRESSION

The visual arts are part of the basics. They communicate forcefully and directly. Students who learn the symbolic structure of the visual arts can respond to and symbolize their experiences in ways that are not dependent on the coding and decoding of verbal language. These skills are especially important in the American culture where information is transmitted both visually and verbally. Experiences in the visual arts lead to the formation of enduring attitudes, values, and satisfying accomplishments.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION:
Art is an elective under Fine Arts. A student must earn 10 credits in two out of three selective elective areas (Fine Arts, World Languages and Applied Academics). For example, if a student earns 10 credits in an art course (Fine Arts) he/she would still need 10 credits from either World Languages or Applied Academics to satisfy the graduation requirement.


UC ELIGIBILITY:
f. Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) – 1 year required. A student must earn 10 credits and a grade of "C" or higher in a single, yearlong approved VPA course.
