The visual arts curriculum
of the Belmont Public Schools has been designed to provide students
with rich opportunities in developing skills and knowledge in both
creating art and responding to art. The program also promotes awareness
and understanding of the connections between visual art and other
arts and disciplines through the study of the arts of other cultures
and historical periods. Through our curriculum, students also come
to understand the purpose of the arts as a means of personal expression,
as well as its role in our daily lives.
The goals for the visual arts program are consistent
with the National Standards for Visual Art, as well as with the
standards articulated in the Massachusetts Arts Curriculum Framework.
