The visual arts program encourages, teaches, supports and enhances techniques and skills needed to foster life-long creativity and appreciation of the arts.
All students participate in classes dedicated to the appreciation and promotion of the visual arts. Through drawing, painting, sculpting and application of other media, students develop fine motor skills while gaining a deeper understanding of and appreciation for aesthetic elements within their world.
We emphasize process by building on the skills learned the preceding year. Printmaking, painting, drawing, pottery, collage, weaving and papier-mâché are explored at each grade level. Art vocabulary, techniques and skills are presented with each medium; and we work closely with grade-level and subject-matter teachers to extend and to enrich their curriculum.
