The elementary art education program follows the “Adventures in Art” program. The program deals with the elements of art such as line, shape, form, texture and color. Each element builds on the next. For example, lines form shapes, shapes form objects which may have color and texture. Grades 2 and 3 are introduced to famous artists on a very basic level dealing with a particular project. 4th and 5th grades projects are geared toward the fine arts using various materials such as scratch-board, water colors, sand, and paris craft.
Children on all levels are encouraged to be creative with projects, using their imagination to take projects further than the examples given.
Grades 2 – 5 meet once a week for 45 minutes. Children are asked to wear either old clothes on the day they have art, although smocks are available in the art room.
