“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Community partnerships and involvement are essential to the fine arts program in Ogden School District. We believe that well-rounded people can appreciate art in all of its forms. Students explore art in elementary and can take art courses in the secondary. At the high school level, they can choose many different media types to explore as discover more about themselves and art.
