LEARN seeks to provide educators with pathways to getting students to create and appreciate works of art. The visual arts offer young people a wide variety of means of exploration. Through their creations, students can give concrete form to their questions, convictions, perception of life, aspirations, hopes and dreams. Through their appreciation of the works of others, students gain insight into the inner lives of the people around them.
