BVUSD is very fortunate to have a very rich art program that includes not only a volunteer-led docent program but also our very own artist-in-residence. All BVUSD students will receive art lessons where they can express themselves through the medium of art with professional instruction and class interaction. The importance of art is highlighted through relevant art history, structured to the curriculum and abilities of the different grade levels. Through the art-making process, students develop confidence, skills and practice constructive thinking. Students are also engaged in the creation of unique works of art for BVEF’s annual Valley of the Arts fundraiser.
