The Orange Cove High School Visual Arts Department consists of Art teachers: Mrs. Singley and Mr. Smith, and offers the most electives of all other departments on campus.
Students enrolled in Art courses at OCHS receive a well rounded education in both traditional and contemporary media. These art courses help our students develop, not only as artists, but also as creative and critical thinkers and provide them with rich sensory experiences in the classroom. Art is an avenue for students to express themselves visually and as we continue to grow, here at OCHS, we expect our students to create great things.
