Art Program

The Valley View art program is an exposure to a variety of medium that is associated with both traditional and non-traditional materials which are utilized to create two and three-dimensional art forms. Art provides another positive outlet for our students and being engrossed in the process of creating art can be very therapeutic. All middle school students have art class built into their schedule and every student has the opportunity to take art as an elective course. Our spacious 600 square foot art studio is well lit and has 20-foot ceilings. Connected to the art studio is an expensive outside deck area that provides extra space for students to work on their art.  Our highly experienced art teacher has worked at Valley View since 1987 and he continues to create new projects for our students as our art program continues to evolve.
