    Our Vision

    The Knox County Schools Visual Arts Department strives to be an outstanding art program comprised of certified art educators. Knox County students participate in a comprehensive, balanced, and sequential visual arts course of study throughout their education. We implement the 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking/problem solving. To achieve this vision, we address our culture, our priorities, and our practices in five interrelated areas: students, educators, parents and community, infrastructure, and accountability.
