The Year Ahead in Visual Arts

The Staples High School art program is a cornerstone of the school's curriculum, given the understanding that the arts have a distinct and significant impact on students’ growth and development. The district is following state guidelines regarding the visual arts to ensure a safe learning environment. Staples is committed to providing artistic development to the greatest extent possible during the 2020-2021 school year regardless of whether students are learning in school, at home or a combination of both. We are working on innovative solutions to allow students to share their creativity, talent and achievements.

Please refer to this website throughout the school year for updated information regarding our visual art program which will evolve and be fluid given the changing circumstances of state health guidance.
