Visual Arts education is an essential part of every person’s preparation for life in the 21st century.  The Waterford Art department encourages inquiry, innovation, discovery and wonder, enabling students to investigate the past and realize the future. 

All people have the ability to express and communicate ideas in original and creative ways.  A comprehensive Visual Arts education program develops students’ imagination, self-awareness and personal expression.  It cultivates visual literacy, critical and creative thinking and problem-solving skills.  A Visual Arts program fosters the means, knowledge and direction to develop 21st century learning skills as well as success in college and career readiness. 

The Waterford Visual Arts Program builds a foundation that sequentially develops students’ visual arts skills and knowledge through four artistic processes: Creating, Presenting, Responding and Connecting.  It promotes high quality standards while developing the capacity to refine work, make informed, aesthetic choices and solve complex problems.  Learning through the Visual Arts introduces students to the world around them and instills global awareness and appreciation.  Waterford’s Visual Arts program fosters creativity and independence.

We live in a world of visual communication.  The Visual Arts play a critical role in our culture, sense of community, communication, personal decision making and economy.  They permeate every aspect of our daily lives.
