What is Visual Arts Education in Jeffco?
Jeffco Schools Foundation is honored to partner with Jeffco Public Schools to elevate students’ art work – we have amazing student artists and dedicated, talented art teachers in our District. Visual Arts programs are an integral part of the core curriculum offered at every K-12 Jeffco public school. Jeffco Schools provide high quality instruction, emphasizing a balance of studio art (creating), critique and analysis, and art history. The curriculum students receive is based on the Colorado Academic Standards - Visual Arts, in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, digital media, sculpture, and ceramics.
Why is Visual Arts Education important for students?
Visual Arts are essential. They teach students innumerable lessons - practice makes perfect, small differences can have large effects, collaboration leads to creativity. Visual arts also teach children that there are several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution.
