At OCS, the visual arts curriculum is set up to develop the student’s skill by focusing on the understanding and the use of art elements in a variety of media. But in the same way, the emphasis is also on a student’s visual literacy. That is, the student will learn to understand and appreciate the historical context, the cultural bases, and the current manifestations of visual art. In turn, the student will develop the ability to appropriately understand art, make aesthetic judgments, and create art.
