Developing the Whole Child
As part of our commitment to providing students with a broad and varied curriculum we believe all students should be exposed to the more creative disciplines. We believe that participation in a creative program encourages children to grow in confidence and self-expression, as well as expand their knowledge and academic horizons
Students are encouraged to express their creativity through weekly art classes. The art teacher serves as facilitator in the exploration of mixed media art through interaction with a variety of mediums and techniques. The emphasis is process-oriented. Individuality and personal interpretation is prioritized through the process and manipulation of materials as opposed to product end-result oriented work. We have a school wide art show each spring where we display many incredible examples of our students work. Emphasis is on imagination and developing confidence in creative expression.
