At CHHS, the visual arts department strives for artistic excellence for the students who choose to pursue the arts. Our goals are to nurture the artistic interests of our students, to make cross-curricula connections, and to provide resources and direction for students pursuing art in life or career. Students needs are met through scaffolded art courses, an art club, and collaborations with school and community organizations. The CHHS Art Department is dedicated to find more and do more for our students. Due to this effort we have received over $55k in grants over the last three years. With this grant students have access to technology, resources, artists, and real-world artistic experiences.
We offer several art courses for our students based on their interests and courses are scaffolded so that students build on knowledge each year. Intro to Art for 7th grade students explores art and allows students to decide if they want to pursue art further. Art I is for 9th grade through 12th grade students to learn creativity, visual literacy, and basic art skills. Design is for second year art students to learn how to apply design theory to visual art using more technical skills. Career and Community Arts is designed for third year art students to explore artistic career options and experience real world design projects. Finally, Portfolio Development is available to fourth year art students who have the goal of entering art school and pursuing an art related career. This course will prepare the student for college-level art courses and teach them to build a portfolio.
The Colbert County Schools Fine Arts Festival is a collaborative effort among the art and music students in Colbert County to showcase all of their work and talents. This is a free annual event held in the spring. The art department also collaborates with the Drama Department, Music Department, and Business Department throughout the school year on many school events and productions.
