Art is basic to the development of a productive creative human being. The Chappaqua K-12 Art Department is committed to providing a supportive and challenging environment to explore and create.
We foster creativity, curiosity, hands-on problem solving, visual literacy, personal expression and a reflection on an individual relationship to the world. Critical thinking, collaboration and communication are cultivated. Aesthetic experience and connections deepen understanding of past and present cultures, and help us imagine and create the future.
The focus for the K-12 Art Department is the creative process.
