Secondary Art in BISD
Birdville ISD offers instruction in visual art at all levels. Elementary schools are serviced by a team of art educational aides that travel to each campus on a rotational basis providing approximately 10 art lessons a year to grades K-5.
Each middle and high school is staffed with one or more full-time art specialists. Curriculum includes the study of the elements of art (line, value, texture, color, form, and space) as well as the principles of art (unity, emphasis, balance, variety, movement, and proportion) through designing and creating original artworks. Various media utilized are drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and digital media. Students study the artworks of contemporary and past artists as well as their fellow students.
Birdville artists have a number of opportunities to display their artworks and enter contests such as their campus show, district show, VASE (Visual Art Scholastic Event), Jr VASE, and various community events.
