By understanding styles of art throughout history and learning about techniques from the masters, the High School art classes contemplate, discuss, and create art in a variety of media. Beyond these elements, we use art to delve into deeper questions such as: What is it that makes us think and solve problems creatively? What will motivate us to work hard? How can we focus on interesting problems to solve?
