An art education is an integral part of a child's core curriculum in our district. Our Council Rock Art Department strives to provide our students with an education and opportunities that are exemplary. We are driven by our mission and continue to develop ways to integrate technology into our art lessons. Students learning and exploration in Visual art begin when they enter first grade. Lessons are sequential and each year builds upon skills and knowledge gained the year prior. The ultimate goal is to give our students the skills needed to succeed in a global community. We create our lessons revolving around four main disciplines. We are developing the child as Art Historian, Art Critic, Art Producer, and Aesthetician.  * As an Art Historian, students are interacting with an essential part of human history and being provided with a foundation for understanding the present as well as the future. Students are making important connections with culture, society, and themselves. * As an Art Critic, students are utilizing communication skills and critical thinking skills in both the written and verbal form. Students are developing a sense of possibility, transformation and change. * As an Art Producer, students are learning a variety of ways to express themselves. Students are gaining tools for making connections between intellect and emotion, tools for bringing meaning and beauty into our lives, and tools for solving problems and communicating ideas. * As an Aesthetician, students identify beliefs that drive their personal artistic creations as well as the creations of others.
