As a Cumberland Valley Middle School Art Department, we are committed to developing creativity, critical-thinking, communication and collaboration skills through visual arts instruction.
Students’ capacity to create and express themselves through the arts is a basis for success in the 21st century. Instruction will center around engaging students in the artistic process developing skills in visual communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. Topics of studies will tap into student interests, while engaging them in authentic visual problems. Students will gain an awareness and appreciation of the importance of visual literacy in their culture.
