The visual arts program is designed for students with the desire to express themselves through art media, enrich their cultural awareness and, for some, explore career possibilities. The art courses are organized on a discipline-based approach which incorporates production, history, evaluation and aesthetic understanding. it is the goal of the art program to provide students with a journey of artistic discovery for creative self expression and personal fulfillment while using right brain functions considered essential for tomorrow's leaders, inventors, thinkers and artists.
The EVHS Art department is designed with introductory courses which must be taken before entering the classes of concentrated study. The introductory courses offer a foundation of artistic study by letting the student sample a variety of art media and projects as well as work with the elements and principles of art and design which are fundamental to all art forms. Since the introductory classes are the gateway into the courses of concentrated study, it is strongly suggested that the seriously interested student take Introduction to 2-Dimensional Art and Introduction to 3-Dimensional Art the first year, thus meeting requirement for all other classes.
A sketchbook is recommended in all introductory courses.
Note: A contribution is requested to cover art materials that are kept by the student upon completion of the course.
