Visual Art
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
Pablo Picasso

Klein ISD provides instruction in visual art at all levels. The district has employed art specialists on all intermediate and high school campuses and starting in the fall of 2007, embarked on a multi-year process of employing specialists on all elementary campuses. Students examine both natural and man-made objects, explore art elements (line, value, texture, color, form and space), and apply art principles (unity, emphasis, balance, variety, movement and proportion) in designing, developing and creating original artworks (drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and digital media). Students will study the artworks of contemporary and past artists and that of fellow students to enhance their appreciation of art culture and heritage and to develop visual discrimination and evaluative skills in applying aesthetic judgements. Klein ISD students may enter their work in many area contests including the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Scholastic Art Contest, VASE, Youth Art Month and many others.

Youth Art Month - Capitol Awards Ceremony and Exhibition

March is Youth Art Month

Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance held each March to promote the value of art education for all children and to support quality school art programs. Youth Art Month was created in 1961 by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI), a non-profit association of art and craft materials manufactures, in cooperation with the National Art Education Association, NAEA. In 1984, ACMI created the Council for Art Education (CFAE) to administer the national Youth Art Month program and encourage funding for the program. Each March, YAM spotlights art education through states’ declarations, capitol events and exhibits.

First Lady of Texas, Mrs. Cecilia Abbott is an influential advocate for art programs. She developed a love for the arts at a very young age and recognizes that participation in art helps children develop initiative, creativity and self-discipline, traits that are essential to success in life. First Lady Abbott participates in the Youth Art Month State Capital Artwork Exhibit, where 100 pieces of original artwork created by Pre-K through 12th grade students are selected for exhibition in the State Capitol.

This year, five students and their original artwork were chosen to represent Klein ISD in the annual YAM Capitol Exhibit. Sunday, March 28th, these students were recognized and honored at the award ceremony, held at the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum.
