Students at AWB Painting

As we work our way through Youth Art Month, we wanted to share with our community a peek into our art classrooms. Throughout the year, students learn about the principles of art and how they can apply them to their creative ideas. 

Students get to explore many different types of media including drawing, painting, digital, and mixed media materials. Our teachers help guide their exploration into their imagination while providing them opportunities to learn the best techniques to express themselves. The students learn the importance of critical thinking, communication, and collaboration as it relates to the art world and the endless opportunities that stem from their blank canvases.

“The skills and knowledge students learn in their art classes translate to so many aspects of their education,” says High School Art Teacher Ms. Wallace. “Creativity is incredibly beneficial to the educational journey of our students.”
