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

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.
