Department Mission:

The Uxbridge High School Visual Arts Department uses a multidisciplinary approach and a traditional studio-based curriculum to establish the foundation for lifelong learning in the arts. Students will learn perceptual, critical thinking and problem solving skills to develop their abilities to think creatively. The art program is a sequential course of studies that includes the use of tools and techniques, understanding elements and principles of design, developing craftsmanship, gaining an awareness of art history, and the effective use of technology. The variety of class projects allows students the opportunity to create artworks, to write effectively about the arts, and to synthesize and apply new information. Artistic and creative expression will be fostered in a safe environment where students develop respect for themselves and others. Assessment strategies are designed to demonstrate what students know and can do; these include tests, quizzes, exhibits, critiques, oral presentations and portfolios, as well as graded projects.

Art education is essential to the intellectual, social, and emotional development of each individual. The arts promote 21st century skills necessary to succeed in today’s world, such as effective communication, visual literacy, collaboration, and global awareness.
