Art Department Vision
The Knox County Schools Art Department strives to be an outstanding art program comprised of certified art educators. Knox County students participate in a comprehensive, balanced, and sequential visual arts course of study throughout their education. We implement the 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking/problem solving.

Congratulations to 2 of Our Own
Congratulations are in order for two of our art teachers.

Flowerree Galetovic has been named as the Arts and Humanities Medalist in Visual Arts from the Germantown Arts Alliance for making a significant contribution to visual arts. She will be honored at the 20th Annual Arts and Humanities Awards Gala on November 9th. Flowerree is an arts advocate for arts education and arts educators across the state, as well as, an art teacher at Bearden High School. We are all happy for her to be recognized with this award.

Holly Briggs, art teacher at Mooreland Heights, has been recognized for her work as an art teacher and artist in this week's MetroPulse. Click here for a link to her story. The week prior, her students' artwork was also featured in the MetroPulse. Click here to view the student artwork.

Thank you both for your continuing dedication to art, art education, and our students.
