The arts enable personal, intellectual, social, economic, and human growth by fostering creativity and providing opportunities for expression beyond the limits of language. As with any language, artistic literacy provides the tools necessary to express one's self. The Clinton-Glen Gardner visual art curriculum is designed in accordance with the New Jersey Learning Standards. In view of the pending publication of the National Coalition of Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) National Arts Standards, anticipated for fall 2014, no revisions were made to the 2009 Visual & Performing Arts Standards.
