WHAT ARE SCPS GIFTED AND TALENTED ART SERVICES?
Gifted and Talented Art Services is the SCPS program for students in grades 6-8 that are identified as gifted in the Visual Arts. Students participate in small group activities which correspond to their higher skills, creativity, and interest levels.
- Gifted and Talented Art Services are provided through multiple avenues for students at the secondary level including differentiation through the art curriculum, after school seminars, community events and field experiences.
- The curriculum expands the grade level art objectives to include broader concept development, aesthetic awareness, a wider range of techniques and materials, and higher-level thinking skills.
It should be noted that Gifted and Talented Art is not meant to take the place of regular instruction in art; rather it provides supplemental enrichment.
