Why Study Art Appreciation in High School?

The art appreciation class is as important as the course because it stimulates students’ interest in the course. The class acts as the entry point into ancient art. We’ll also compare the three and two-dimensional media. Also, we will touch on photography as an art. 

We will recommend the course for students that want to go into photography, software design, multimedia art, or digital design. Apart from informing students on the purpose, methods, and beauty of art, the course also introduces students to critical thinking, complex analysis, and lateral thinking. In fact, these skills will be beneficial to all students regardless of their chosen career.
