The Visual Art program at Sunshine SDS provides students with regular opportunities to experience and learn through the exploration and creative use of materials. Art activities provide for sensory stimulation to promote learning and development through fun. The process of creating is often more important than the finished product. Art experiences promotes self-esteem, self-expression and sense of achievement and skill development. The Visual Arts program often complements and enhances many other aspects of the student’s educational environment, such as participation, engagement, choice making, communication, motor skills and sensory exploration, processing and integration. Through art experiences students develop an appreciation of art and additional recreational opportunities.
