Art

Students in kindergarten through the 6th grade receive art instruction as an enrichment class. Art classes are designed to incoporate hands-on activities and projects that allow students to master the use of age appropriate art materials and tools. Activities and projects include units in drawing, painting, weaving, color concepts, clay play, trash art, and many more. Students are encouraged to explore new ideas, expand their creativity, and develop self-confidence in their individual abilities. Our goal is to develop group cooperation, hone fine motor skills. improve art skills, foster an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts, and provide a safe place for students to express themselves artistically in an environment of acceptance
