art work for BH-BL studentsBH-BL Art Program

The BH-BL Art program is based on the knowledge that art is a significant part of a student’s life and is an essential part of their education. Art is fundamental to human growth and provides students with intellectual, creative, and emotional experiences that connect them to a common core of knowledge. Art serves as a tool for building self- confidence through personal expression and communication. Art provides invaluable opportunities for students to use their imagination and problem solve using their own creativity. Art allows a forum for expression of the human spirit and validation of feelings in studying, creating and responding to art. Art education will heighten an appreciation for visual literacy and the challenges of creative self-expression needed in the 21st century.
