Welcome to the York Art Department

In the York High School Art Department, we believe that ALL students are artists and we are fully dedicated to developing the artistic talents of all students through a comprehensive visual art program.

Visual art classes provide students access to a variety of art-making media. Courses are offered in drawing and painting, digital and traditional photography, ceramics and sculpture, jewelry and metalsmithing, animation, digital design, and art history. Within our state-of-the-art facilities, students can explore their creativity and refine their skill using top-notch equipment and supplies as well as robust digital resources such as iPads, iMacs, and 3D printers.

Art classes are sequenced from beginning to advanced levels including college bound Advanced Placement programs. Incoming students can expect a nurturing, yet challenging curriculum that emphasizes technical skills, creativity, and the theoretical importance of the arts in society.
