What is the Visual Arts Classic (VAC)?
VAC is a competitive art team for high school students that involves 11 media categories, a yearly theme, and opportunities for young artists to compete in both individual and team events. Through their experiences with VAC students will develop and expand many skills including the following:
Working Independently (Individual Events)
Working Cooperatively (Team Events)
Staying Focused on a Task
Understanding Theme Development
Developing Art History Knowledge
Strengthening Problem Solving Skills (Taking Risks)
Learning Time Management Skills
Overseeing and Taking Charge of their Own Learning
