The Lower School art program aims to broaden and deepen students’ artistic knowledge and development while they experience the joy and meaning found in the process of being a creative, artistic individual. We consider art an essential component to educating the whole child.
Students thrive in an environment where they are encouraged to imagine, design, create, and collaborate. Each class meeting is designed to offer kinesthetic opportunities that expose students to a vast array of art media and techniques, such as drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, assemblage, woodworking, ceramics, new media, and STEAM based projects.
Class time and projects increase students’ visual literacy as they are exposed to a wide range of artists and their art forms, both multicultural and historical. Students experience art through children’s literature, digital media, museum trips, visiting artists, and most importantly seeing their own artwork prominently displayed throughout the school.
