• Art Education is a critical part of the intellectual development of all children. In its most basic form, art is visual literacy that provides a meaningful avenue for understanding the world around us. The Peekskill City School District’s Art Curriculum is designed to give students a creative experience in the classroom. Students learn the joy of making art and gain an understanding and appreciation of art as a visual language. In the art room, students become familiar with the Principles and Elements of Art and Design, are exposed to various art materials, and become introduced to art history.
