The art classes at DePaul Prep help students develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills by doing hands on projects that promote decision making, risk taking, and resourcefulness.
The subjects taught through art prepare students to research, analyze and determine possible solutions for real-world problems, creating well-rounded employable individuals. Through Art classes at DePaul Prep, students must convey meaning through their artwork which not only is beneficial as a presentation tool but also promotes self-identity, helping students identify their passion for certain subjects or themes.
For the past 15 years, Arts Integration has been an essential practice in my classes that helps students gain an understanding of the relation between the arts and other scholastic subjects. Through Art making practices I aim to help students love and appreciate the world and to develop a sense of belonging in hopes of stimulating their career choices.
