The Art Department’s mission at Cortland Enlarged City School District is not to simply create works of art, but create and maintain an educational environment that is safe, empowering, and abounding in opportunities for students to express themselves through their artwork. Our purpose as educators is to create an environment that establishes creative thinkers who understand how to incorporate the arts into every aspect of their lives and futures!
