Visual Arts


In Elementary art, students become responsible citizens in the art room. They learn about the elements of art, art history, and artists. They have the opportunity to explore materials, create art, and express themselves.

Lessons incorporate the National Art Standards and use an inquiry-based approach. Students make meaningful connections to classroom content and concepts. Art instruction teaches to the whole child.

Middle School

The Middle School Visual Arts program emphasizes an exploration into a variety of art and studio techniques. Ceramics gives students experiences in making functional as well as sculptural pieces. Well thought out forms, designs and functional uses along with good craftsmanship are emphasized. The class is an introduction to basic techniques in both hand building and wheel- working. Various methods of glazing and firing are addressed as they relate to student work on specific projects.
