Re: [teacherartexchange] mission statement

Hi Donna,
At the high school where I work (Regional, MA) we created a mission
statement about 5 years ago... soon after, we adapted it to include
the entire district art departments K-12.

The mission of the K-12 Visual Arts Department is based on the
recognition of the universal human need for visual expression. Central
to the mission is our commitment to provide an environment in which
the student will develop aesthetic skills: the ability to express
oneself artistically. Students are introduced to a variety of media
and techniques that develop, challenge, enhance and contribute to
creative thinking, problem solving and individual expression.

I hope this helps.
