Visual Art

The art program at Oak Hill provides opportunities for students to explore a variety of art materials and techniques. Students enjoy projects in drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. Projects focus on the elements and principles of design, and introduce students to well known figures from art history. Participating in art activities will allow students to practice creative expression, critical thinking, and encourage fine motor skill development.

Computer Technology

The computer technology program at Oak Hill provides opportunities for students to work with a variety of software applications and focus on a full range of academic subjects.
