The Art Studio
The art studio is a unique place that fosters the creative spirit. We all have the ability to be creative. Art promotes the development of a child perceptually, creatively, emotionally, and socially. With this in mind, the art curriculum is designed to enable each unique student to develop the art skills and techniques necessary to give full expression to their ideas and experience. The students are involved in age-appropriate, material based art exploration. They use visual thinking strategies to study painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, and time arts. Art projects are often interdisciplinary, offering students the chance to consider aspects of their other classes through a cultural lens. Individual creativity within the context of a historical art dialogue is emphasized. Art projects allow students to creatively problem solve through individual and group art activities with an emphasis on process rather than product.
