- The Utah State Fine Arts curriculum contains four strands: Create, Present, Respond, and Connect. The curriculum can be viewed athttps://www.uen.org/core/core.do?courseNum=1572
- In visual arts classes, students will learn to research and develop ideas. They will respond to thematic prompts, master works and student works and make artistic connections to their own lives. Students will learn artistic techniques, engage in skills projects and create art projects to improve their abilities, to enjoy creating artwork and to understand some of the purposes of art. Students will present their artwork in school art displays and to their parents with a Parent Portfolio Review.

- Parent portfolio review(100 points): Project quality will increase as a student’s skills increase and increased skills will indicate progress. Therefore, a review of a student’s portfolio will be necessary by the student, teacher and parents.

Assignments can be re-graded upon a student’s request. Students can make up missing work after school, during lunch or at home.
