The Fine Arts Program in the Brockton Public
Schools provides an aesthetic, intellectual and stimulating atmosphere for
creative and technical proficiency. The sequential arts program is designed to
awaken the child's awareness to beauty in life and nature and to develop a deep
appreciation of social and cultural backgrounds.

In art, students learn to express their own
ideas and emotions through various art forms and media, encouraging personal
growth and a developed sense of self-esteem. Art offers opportunities for
students to grow and make connections in life. It fosters development of
problem solving skills through exploration and opens doors for growth and
development which otherwise may never have been discovered.

As students progress they are given the
opportunity to investigate and analyze past influences in the arts and society
as well as present trends. Student artists are encouraged to respond to this
knowledge by using their advancing skills to create meaningful pieces of art.

The Brockton Public Schools Fine Arts Program,
K-12, adopts the vision of the Massachusetts Arts Curriculum Framework, which
states, "Learning in, about and through the arts develops each learner's
capacity to make meaning from experience, respond to creativity and contribute
to our society." The Fine Arts Program in the Brockton Public Schools
embraces the Guiding Principles of the Arts Framework.
