Art Goal: Our aim is to nurture the artistic potential of each student to its fullest extent.

NISD's art courses are designed around key concepts, encompassing a diverse range of 2D and 3D artistic principles. The curriculum spans drawing, painting, printmaking, digital art, and three-dimensional art forms like ceramics and mixed media compositions. Students are encouraged to cultivate artistic originality, creativity, and problem-solving skills, preparing them to actively participate in district and state-level events.
Our programs stand out for their competitive and challenging nature, providing students with a platform to push their artistic boundaries. It's worth noting that our art program has received awards, underscoring our commitment to excellence in fostering artistic talent.
