Pre-K to 5th Grade

Our goal in lower school art is to foster children’s creativity through problem solving, skill development, and the exploration of a variety of materials. Art history is introduced, and projects may be linked to what is being taught in the classroom.

A broad spectrum of projects enable students to become more aware of their environment, to express themselves visually with more confidence, and to develop into flexible and creative human beings. Periodic art discussions enhance students’ reasoning powers and critical thinking. Sketchbook work provides students with accurate records of their visual development through the years.
