Trailside Art

    Our art department strives to create an inviting, inspiring, environment in which our students feel they can take risks and create amazing art.  Art class helps us understand and absorb the world

    around us.  By partnering with students, we will:

    guide their learning individually,

    offer feedback, and

    connect them to work that is personally meaningful. 

     This helps students to experience the real-world of artists and develop an artistic voice.


    We follow all Virginia Standards of Learning while leaving room for our students to branch out and create one of a kind pieces in which they will take pride!
