The focus of the Art Program at Madison School is to introduce the students to the vast array of artists, techiniques and styles in the visual arts. The classroom atmosphere is one that fosters creativity and exploration, while impressing on the students the importance of art history and art from other cultures. Art education is about self-expression, self-awareness, psychology, philosophy and humanity. It is about seeing, feeling, exploring, creating, and discovering. It is about life. Art education not only educates but develops the individual. Here at Madison School we are focused on the development of the individual into a creative and free thinking person. We believe the visual arts provides the perfect opportunity for students to express themselves freely while gaining confidence in all their abilities.
