The curriculum of the Visual Arts Department supports the mission of Enfield High School.  Visual Arts education is a vital part of the total education experience.  The Visual Arts Department provides individuals with instructional learning activities that focus on creativity and the development of responsible life long learners.  Integrated in our Visual Arts curricula are lessons that teach students to:

 

·        Use critical thinking skills to read and respond to texts across all disciplines

·        Solve problems using a variety of skills and reasoning strategies across all disciplines

·        Use multiple resources, including technology, to access, organize, evaluate and present information and/or products

·        Demonstrate the knowledge necessary to make appropriate academic, social, and personal choices

·        Recognize multiple perspectives and acknowledge an individual’s right to opinion
