Art Classes at Nonnewaug High School

Students will have a quality education with self-expression at the heart of the program. Students will experience art as a visual language involving a unique body of knowledge. They will develop perception, imagination, and the ability to communicate and think critically as they engage in the program at every level. Students will learn through a series of organized art experiences to look, discover, and understand. Their original and creative work will tap inner resources and give a personal sense of satisfaction and confidence. The art department allows students to engage the community through extracurricular clubs. The art club allows students to work after school on school and community art projects and programs. The National Arts Honor Society is open to any student who is taking an art class and currently has an A average. The National Arts Honor Society works with students to promote leadership growth opportunities, college and career preparation, and an unmatched sense of camaraderie while engaging with the community.
