Art Department                          


    Art Department Overview: 

    The Visual Art Department exposes students to creativity, problem-solving, aesthetics and kinesthetic learning. The New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Visual and Performing Arts state as their mission "the arts enable personal, intellectual, social, economic, and human growth by fostering creativity and providing opportunities for expression beyond the limits of language." All courses in the Art Department are elective courses. It should be noted that Art courses are one semester, not full-year, with the exception of Fundamentals of Art and AP Studio Art. Art courses fulfill a student’s Visual & Performing Arts credit requirement.

    The Art Department is also an integral part of Del Val's Fine and Performing Arts Academy!
