General Information

 

The Cobb County Visual Arts program cultivates the whole student, gradually building multiple literacies while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination, and mental and physical dexterity into unique forms of expression and communication. The visual arts equip students with necessary skills for 21st century learning and allow students to apply contemporary methods of investigation.

Academic achievement, knowledge, and skills are evident in the arts and are measured through performance-based assessments. By using the Cobb Teaching and Learning Standards connected to the Georgia Standards of Excellence, visual arts students are equipped and engaged in rigorous visual arts based learning. Higher order thinking is encouraged through instruction in art history, aesthetics, criticism, and production and experience-based exploration into career opportunities involving art-based skills. Instruction in the visual arts discipline is delivered through the four strands of production, presenting, responding, and connecting. These four areas allow students to learn how to create their own artwork, present it for exhibition, express artistic intent through oral conversation and written explanation, and connect their work to other disciplines and real world experiences.

Visual arts classes are offered at all grade levels (K-12). Advanced courses are offered at most middle schools and at the high school level. Students in Cobb County consistently place in local, state and national art shows and competitions.
