Visual Arts

  • The Visual Arts Department at South Park High School includes three art teachers and two classroom/studios.  During their time at South Park High School, students participate in art courses to compliment their core academic subjects as well as to meet New York State graduation requirements.  Students within art courses seek not only to further own understanding of visual arts, but also to provide service to the school through the painting of murals and assisting with building displays for special times of the year.
