BH-BL Art Program

The BH-BL K-12 Art program strives to foster creativity in every student and promote a life-long appreciation for the visual arts. Our program encourages individual thought, decision making, creative problem solving, innovation, personal expression, and collaboration. Students create, present, and respond to works of art and learn how artistic ideas and artworks connect with society, culture, and history. BH-BL art students have numerous opportunities to showcase their work in exhibitions throughout the district, community, and the capital district.
