Welcome to Art!

Gateway's Philosophy on Art Educationá

Art education is a core discipline, essential to the growth and development of all students.

The sequential art curriculum for grades K-12 is organized in three strands:

  • PROCESS: idea development, planning, material processes, and reflection
  • PRODUCT: media, techniques, subject matter, content, craftsmanship, and presentation
  • UNDERSTANDING: art history, cultural context, criticism, aesthetics, and art vocabulary

áá áá á áá ááá

Our curriculum is designed to develop content knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • personal expression through art production
  • creative problem solving
  • recognition of the role and importance of art and artists in society, culture, and history
  • critical assessment of art works from aesthetic and cultural perspectives
  • technical processes

Art instruction in Gateway provides an environment which offers challenges to all students, builds on individual differences, and provides means by which students may express themselves and develop positive self concepts.
