Lincoln Public Schools Visual Arts Curriculum
The Visual Arts program provides students with multiple means of expression as well as analytical skills to evaluate information that is conveyed through images and symbols. Participating in the visual arts develops critical thinking skills and draws upon core academic areas to solve problems through creation, reflection and understanding. Students develop individual expression, perseverance, and the ability to work collaboratively to achieve artistic goals, while preparing for a lifetime engagement with the arts.
The four Visual Arts Standards are:
CREATE art to generate ideas.
CONNECT individual perspective and identity through the study of art.
RESPOND to understand and appreciate works of art, themselves and others.
PRESENT to communicate ideas, process and product.

I earned my B.S. and Masters degrees from the University of Nebraska and have been teaching Art since 1982 at elementary through middle school levels in three different school districts.
Teaching students about the wonders of art and watching their ideas develop into amazing works of art is what I enjoy most about my job at Humann.
"The arts enable us to have experience we can have from no other source and through such experience to discover the range and variety of what we are capable of feeling". (Elliot W. Eisner)
