Students should wear messy, artist-type clothes that they can move around in. No dresses or skirts, please.
The HSPVA Art Guild is a volunteer parent organization that assists with fundraising and enhancement programs for the Kinder HSPVA Visual Arts Department. The Art Guild is a part of HSPVA Friends, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The mission of the Visual Arts Department program is to provide a solid foundation in the visual arts and to build a broad-based fine arts experience with an emphasis on idea/concept development, problem-solving, and critical thinking. This approach requires visual arts students to develop critical thinking skills, to enhance their technical skills, and to experience and explore an extensive variety of arts-related media. Additionally, it is our goal to allow advanced students the luxury of independent study and group discourse to incubate and carry out a rigorous exploration of their own areas of interest, be they political, personal, social, and/or aesthetic, resulting in uniquely individualized portfolios.
