Visual Arts

In grades 1st-5th art is taught in the class by homeroom teachers, and parent volunteers through the Art Parents program.  Funded by the Parent Board, Art Parents exposes students to the work of artists, and gives them hands on experiences with a variety of media.
Middle-school students have one trimester of art as part of their Arts Education curriculum. Students use basic and advanced art materials, develop their skills and techniques for creating quality work, learn central principals and elements of art, and develop their own aesthetic awareness and appreciation.
