Learn Through Art

Elysian Heights Arts Magnet launched a school-wide visual arts program in the fall of 2016. Our goal is to improve student achievement through the visual arts.

We also have a mission to enrich students' lives by teaching them techniques utilized by history's greatest artists. Throughout the year we focus on a different artist's life, specific techniques, and how this artist impacted the art world.

Pottery and ceramics have a long tradition here at EHS — you will find beautiful samples by professional artists throughout the school — and to continue this tradition, we've recently acquired a new, state of the art kiln, where clay pieces created by students can be fired by staff.

 

“To be an artist is to believe in life.”
