Fine Arts Department
In a world increasingly interconnected by instantaneous, digital communications, the role of the artist is more vital than ever. Artists express the emotions and ideas of our shared human experience, address social and political issues, challenge us to think and feel in new ways, and sometimes even entertain us- all through works that can transcend language and cultural barriers.
When we consider that everything man-made is formed by an artist or a designer, as art educators, we realize the responsibility each of us carries. We provide the opportunity for our students to make significant contributions through art and design. At Hackensack High School we accomplish this by providing a safe and supportive “home away from home” environment which enables our students a place to exchange ideas, develop an appreciation of the arts, and to incorporate creative concepts into their lives.
