The Lincoln-Way Art Department, in accordance with the school mission statement, is committed to the development of visual literacy as an essential component of a comprehensive curriculum.
The department offers a variety of opportunities and experiences designed to maximize the intellectual, creative, emotional and communicative growth of each student through the study of art production and the role of the visual arts in history, society and everyday life. Our sequential program is designed to develop students’ skills, as well as promote visual awareness, intellectual growth, and self-expression.
It is the intent of this department to develop visual sensitivity and promote lifelong learning skills including creative and critical thinking, problem-solving, evaluation and collaboration. These skills allow students to relate their visual knowledge to other core subjects and approach situations with originality, appreciation and imagination.
The Art Department is dedicated to fostering critically attentiveness to and interpretation of the cultural meanings that visual images convey in today’s society.
