Visual Arts

Visual Arts

Students study line, color/value, texture, form/shape and space through a variety of age appropriate art activities and mediums. 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. Making critical decisions and accepting ownership of their creations helps builds self esteem and self-confidence.

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.
