Students at ACS have a wide variety of visual arts offerings, from drawing to graphic design! Our drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, and honors art classes are all aligned with the Illinois State Standards, the Priority Learning Targets of the District, and Advanced Placement for the Arts.
God created us in his own image; and one of the most fascinating and awesome gifts is our own ability to create!
As students excel in class, they are rewarded by having their artwork published online. This gives them both local and national recognition. See our social accounts to see some of their amazing work.
