Guiding Principles

The teachers of Fine Arts in Hingham hold that:

  • An art experience is a highly personal and unique interaction involving the student and the art object
  • Direct experience involving the use of media is essential for any complete understanding of art
  • While standards of art performance are desirable, they are relative to the individual student’s capacity to perform
  • Students contemplating extended involvement in art and/or pursuit of a career in art should begin art electives as early as possible.

All courses in this department address Student Learning Expectations 3, 4, and 6.
