Art Department

Art Department Vision

The Whitney Point Art Department’s vision is grounded in the character-building values of persistence, perseverance, and innovation in order to foster creative, globally aware, artistically literate citizens. We aim for our students to develop respect and appreciation for cultural differences by delving into art spanning various cultures, time periods, and artists. Through a diverse array of opportunities, we inspire students to explore their passions, honing their talents while discovering possible careers in the vibrant world of art. 

As a K-12 department, we implement the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts and vertically align our curriculum to provide rich, hands-on learning experiences for every student in the Whitney Point School District.  Students will create original artwork, present their work through building and district displays, respond to their own work and the work of others through art analysis and critique, and connect their experiences to the community and the world around them.
