Mrs. Amy Kintner » WELCOME TO VHA VISUAL ARTS 2018-19!



Welcome Students and Families, to our new school year!  


This year, we begin with a new set of CPS Arts Learning Standards, adapted from the Illinois State Arts Learning Standards, to meet our student's specific needs.  Look for more information at our Parent & Student Orientation.


Our Visual Arts theme this year is “Art Right NOW!”  Our experiences in art class will include two foci under this theme: Making Art & Learning From Artists.  First, students will focus on Creating and Producing artforms, through skill-building exercises, idea generation, and process-based learning, to become a better artist.  Second, students will practice Responding to and Connecting with their world through meaningful creative activities.  By synthesizing individual art skills development with insight from world artists, past to present, students  will enjoy a comprehensive art experience!  


I look forward to another exciting year of creative projects and events, which I invite you all to participate in.

We will again celebrate student achievement with our all-school arts exhibition in the Spring of 2019.


Creatively Yours,


Mrs. Amy Kintner, Art Teacher
