The visual arts offer students the opportunity to express their own unique visions of the world.  Art teaches children valuable ways of seeing, imagining, inventing and thinking.  At Athens Academy, art education enhances each student’s ability to fully experience beauty and art, while deepening the student’s understanding of culture and history.
