Fort Couch Expressive Arts
The Expressive Arts Curriculum affords Fort Couch students the opportunity to learn skills needed to meet the challenges of living in today's global society. The Expressive Arts curriculum incorporates practical, fine and performing arts into one program blending the subject content in each area with required levels of student activity in the form of product and personal performance, fostering art awareness and self-esteem. Each area retains its identity as a unique discipline, but by unifying the program opportunities are provided for social interaction while integrating the skills and objectives of a more traditional program. ART
Art education at Fort Couch focuses on the open-ended creative process of taking a concept and turning it into a product. Students are encouraged to focus on what discoveries were made along the way. While exploring a variety of media including paint, clay, printmaking, digital art and drawing, students are encouraged to take risks with their work and learn problem solving skills through the process of making.
