Visual Arts

Our visual arts program emphasizes the individual, imaginative, and artistic potential of each child and encourages the development of self-confidence, self-discovery, and self-expression. Activities include drawing, painting, clay, collage, printmaking, fabric arts, and other crafts. An art specialist, based in the art room, combines a structured approach with encouragement of free expression. Art instruction, however, is not confined to the art room; the art teacher often collaborates on classroom projects.  Backdrops for plays, watercolors, and sculptures relating to cultural and current events are among the projects widely displayed around the school. Art happens once per week in the art room, starting in 5-6s
