Mr. Chris Bennett
My goal at NBHS is to provide an organized curriculum that teaches the visual arts. In order to accomplish this, students will begin their studies with an overview of the visual elements and principles of design. Each element and principle will be reinforced through art projects that help provide a deeper understanding of this knowledge. The students will explore a variety of materials and techniques. In addition, the students will study significant artists and artistic movements throughout history with an emphasis on cultural awareness, enabling them to better understand the changing role of the arts throughout history.
