Welcome to the Art Department at Buffalo Trail! We have so many amazing art projects planned for this school year and are looking forward to learning through creating art! Please have your child dress for a mess on art day!
Why is art education important? Art makes us look more closely at life: it tells us something about ourselves, culture, and the world. Art education is valuable because it speaks to a wide range of students. The fine arts provide learners with benefits such as promoting self-esteem, motivation, aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity, improved emotional expression, as well as social harmony and appreciation of diversity. The arts enhance perceptual skills, cognitive skills and remain an integral part to our society. Art teaches valuable lessons in problem-solving, working collaboratively with others, and creative-thinking.
