News & Notes

Clay people
 
All classes will focus on different art media giving students a broad range of experience such as clay, painting, drawing, collage, weaving, stitching, printmaking and paper mache to name a few.  Students are encouraged to be problem-solvers and find different unique solutions for their projects. All lessons are in line with the Essential Standards for Visual Art K-5.  Other subjects are integrated as much as possible to help children make connections between different disciplines.  First through fifth grade make sketchbooks which we use throughout the year.
