Embracing the Arts
Chandler-Gilbert values and supports the Arts as a window of self discovery. When students develop critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills through art, they improve their class performance, and enhance their lives. We offer a diverse Arts program that creates learning opportunities for students, and a shared cultural experience that enriches our community.
In Art History classes students explore art, images, and objects and their historical and cultural impact while building skills in analysis and evaluation.
Working in one of the finest ceramics studios in the East Valley, students develop ceramic and critical thinking skills while exploring their imagination and developing their artistic style.
