Visual Arts

According to a report by Americans for the Arts, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.

Building Blocks

Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics is more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.

Academics

A report by Americans for the Arts states that young people who participate regularly in the arts are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.

Inventiveness

When children are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they develop a sense of innovation that will be important in their adult lives.

Art Activities & Mediums

Students study line, color/value, texture, form/shape and space through a variety of age appropriate art activities and mediums.

Self-Esteem & Confidence

Making critical decisions and accepting ownership of their creations helps builds self esteem and self-confidence.

Communication via Art

By learning to communicate in a visual way by breaking down an object into simple shapes and lines, students are encouraged to continue to draw and realize that everyone can be creative in a visually way.

Theme of Study

Emphasis is given to artists and artwork from the school-wide theme of study. Each year, a different theme is chosen for an in depth exploration of culture and history. Many classes take place in the outdoor spaces of our campus.
