The Art Basics Course vision for visual arts education is based on the concept that the arts are an essential part of life, integral in the development of the whole person, and a vital component for the advancement of civilization. The quality of life is improved by physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth experiences through a meaningful, sequential study in visual arts.
A comprehensive visual arts education engages learners in developing self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, creativity, and self-motivation necessary for success.  The skills and technical qualities involved in creating, recreating, and interpreting works in the fine arts provide for lifelong appreciation. Our vision is that all Art Basics Course students will engage in visual arts at a deeply enriching level for them, their families and their communities.

Art has always played an important role in society — even in the earliest ancient river valley civilizations.
But for anyone who is unfamiliar with the art world, its importance may not be immediately obvious.
Studying the history of art can teach us more than just who painted what when.
It can reveal important truths about political movements, cultural values and human nature.
As the practice, techniques and appreciation of art has changed over time, so have we.

Art Basics Course embeds Art History & Art Criticism throughout our courses.
