The teachers of Fine Arts in Hingham hold that

- 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.
