YES funds credentialed art teachers at every elementary school and Pre-Period 6th Grade Art at White Hill middle school. YES also funds all art supplies for every art class K-8. The Mission of the district art program is to provide children in Kindergarten through 8th grade with an enriched, developmentally appropriate and challenging art curriculum that inspires creativity and self-expression, builds self-confidence, and develops problem solving and divergent thinking and helps students become lifelong learners. Students become familiar with a variety of art media, tools, techniques, appreciation for and the development of the language of art and develop the ability to employ the Elements of Art and Principles of Design in their work. The program also emphasizes the importance of art in history and contemporary society.
Student art is displayed in a professional manner to honor and celebrate the work of students and present to the community the impact of student learning. Students are recognized as unique individuals with their own ideas, cultural, familial and social values, and are encouraged to make joyful discoveries and connections in their work through this personal lens.
