The Arts News
Congratulations to all team members who made Open School Night on Thursday, September 28th, 2107 a grand success! As we came upon rigorous subjects and contents during our time, there is no doubt that Liberty's expectations are densely high and required across curriculums. As we know our students at Liberty come from diverse cultural backgrounds, language acquisition skills, and academic levels, to include the arts. With that, the arts programs at Liberty provide windows of opportunities to explore words and phrases of human expression about art -- enhancing their second language skills in English. In the visual arts, students explore the "language of art" to analyze historical and modern art styles, artists, and events to compare with their own perspectives and to that of others. In juxtaposition, students then get to explore a particular artistic style to create and build their individual ideas from foundation to execution.
In reflection, students yet again have the opportunity to use language content objectives to discuss their own art, taking on the role as artists on one hand, and then taking on an audience role on the other for purposeful questioning and answering--all requiring an area of content and language exploration.
(In support of the above, and Open School Night Presentation will be included to include curriculum points, grade policy, expectations, and contact emails).
