Art education cultivates the whole child, gradually building many types of literacy while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination and dexterity into unique forms of expression and communication. Art education also helps students by initiating them into a variety of ways of perceiving and thinking. The arts cultivate the direct experience of the senses. They connect the person and experience directly, build a bridge between verbal and nonverbal, between the strictly logical and emotional, to gain a better understanding of the whole.

Students at SSC attend art classes weekly. They experiment enthusiastically with art materials and investigate the ideas presented to them through visual arts instruction. They learn to work with various tools, processes and media, coordinating their hands and minds in exploration of the visual world.
