Art Department

 

Get Smart - Take Art!

Harold Roberts is the art teacher for the three dimensional courses at CHS and brings 16 years of experience to the art department.  Shannon Werner-Purkey teaches all the two dimensional courses and the AP Art History course. She brings 7 years of experience to the art department.


Creativity, critical thinking and problem solving are all stressed in each art course, in addition to the Indiana art state standards. Central art students have competed and won awards in local, regional, and state competitions. Artwork from former Central students is on permanent display throughout our school. Members of the Central art club have completed reproduction murals of Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and Pablo Picasso’s Guernica which are also on permanent display in our commons. At the end of the school year, about 250 works of two dimensional and three dimensional works of art are on display at the Central High School Art Show at Springleaf Financial. Springleaf Financial also helps with our annual art fundraiser. Each year Central art students design and create cards for Springleaf Financial Services. Their graphic designers choose two designs that they use as their company holiday card. We use the images chosen by Springleaf Financial for our annual art department fundraiser. Please support Central art students - buy your holiday cards from us!
