Visual Arts

The HPS Visual Arts Department works hard to encourage the creativity of every child in the district.  While we believe it is important to teach the principles and techniques of art, we feel it is equally important to allow students to develop the artistic part of the brain.  All students in grades K-7 are provided art instruction each week.  Beginning in 8th grade, we offer a wide array of courses for students who have found an interest in visual arts including ceramics, photography, drawing, painting and digital arts.
