The Arts have been identified by the U.S. Congress, the College Board, The Partnership for 21st Century Skills, the National Association of Secondary Principals, and the U.S. Department of Education as part of the core curriculum which all students should take as part of their high school program.

 The WHS Art Department offers diverse learning opportunities including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, crafts, printmaking, and design. Courses emphasize problem solving, visual literacy, and higher order thinking skills and offer all students the opportunity to:

  •  Recognize the role and importance of art and artists in society, culture, and history
  • Critically assess works of art from many aesthetic and cultural perspectives
  • Communicate visually
  • Think critically and creatively
  • Express their own feelings and ideas

 Opportunities exist for students to display their artwork within the school, district, and the greater community. Those students who display exceptional artistic talent can be recommended by their teachers to submit their work to the Connecticut Regional Scholastic Arts Awards Program, a juried student art show, featuring work created by students from across the state.
