The Department of Applied Learning believes the arts positively impact local communities and are critical to a complete education. Supporting young people in creative learning and artistic endeavors ensures they will be more engaged and enriched in all aspects of their lives. The presence of the arts and artists in society is a vital component of a functioning democracy.
The primary goal of the Visual Arts program is to enable students to develop their minds and intellectual capabilities using all forms of creative intelligence. The Visual Arts are an essential part of the curriculum in Broward County Public Schools. Creativity and self-expression are nurtured allowing students to solve problems and think critically. Through an integrated, interdisciplinary approach, the arts provide a safe environment for the evolution and resolution of ideas. Students are challenged to be active participants in a program with high expectations.
Our team has worked diligently to ensure that the SMART Bond Kiln Program runs effectively and efficiently providing our district with ceramics equipment to enhanced ceramic programs at BCPS schools.
