Welcome to Fruitport High Schools Visual Arts Resource Center
Much of our 2016-2017 Program was enhanced by a Michigan Youth Arts Grant!
Fruitport High School Visual Art Program provides students with a comprehensive academic atmosphere for pursuing advanced study in visual art.
As an artist educator, I strive to ignite a creative spark in each of my students. Emphasis is put on strengthening one’s visual literacy and the development of a personal visual language as a means of communication. Students gain insight and hands on experience with art’s effects on cognitive, personal, and social development within each student.
Why Study Art?
Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork
