Art lives at the corner of Creative Thinking Way and Problem-Solving Road

Mission Vista Students thrive in an atmosphere which combines direct instruction in art techniques and media with opportunities to experiment and take risks. Many students will comment,"I can't take art. I can't draw..." The response to that is, "Take Art 1 and you will learn to draw...and paint ...and make prints..." The only thing that keeps many people away from creating their own art is the misconception that they have to strive to be "as good" as someone else. The truth is that trying to create like someone else robs the world of our own personal style. Everyone's style is unique and we learn from each other as an artistic community.
