“Creativity takes courage.” -Henri Matisse
Barnesville's visual ARTS program is an integral part of our academic curriculum. Our art teacher works closely with our classroom teachers to INTEGRATE art into social studies, science, and even math curriculums.
Barnesville’s art program continuously strives to foster curiosity and confidence in every student that enters the art room. From a young age, students are encouraged to model the basic tenets of artistic behavior. These include: risk-taking, following a line of thought over time, going deep with a preferred medium or technique, playing and experimenting, and bringing aspects of their life into their art. These guiding principles create a safe, inspiring, and joyful environment for students to develop their unique artistic voice.
