Our Chester art program incorporates National Core Art Standards focusing on Creating, Presenting, Responding, and Connecting.  These standards align with the Common Core Standards and 21st Century skills using critical thinking and creative problem solving.

CES art students will be also be learning how real artists find and use inspiration and art practices to connect with their world. Classes will have opportunities for CHOICE DAY art where they will be able to explore and apply learned skills and art concepts. 
This practice called Teaching for Artistic Behavior or Choice Based Art reinforces our district focus on critical thinking and creative problem solving.

Choice−Based Art Education

• allows students to choose topics and materials for exploration

• provides relevant and brief instruction

• covers a broad range of topics in art history, techniques, and materials

• creates a collaborative learning environment

• optimizes students' intrinsic motivation to learn fosters artistic behavior: creativity, innovation, independence, decision making, and problem solving
