The Avon Grove School District Art Department provides students the environment in which they can express their creativity through a variety of media and techniques. Students participate in a performance-based curriculum that scaffolds through Penn London Elementary, Avon Grove Intermediate and Fred S. Engle Middle School in an exploratory structure. In each of these schools, students build upon previous experiences to enhance their design and production skills. Once a student enters Avon Grove High School, a variety of courses are available to be taken as electives, whether to prepare a student for further courses and exploration after graduation, or to follow interests and creativity in a variety of ways.
