Elementary arts program

The elementary art program beginning in grade one, where students are provided formal art instruction with certified art teachers each week. At the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten level, art is included in many of the regular classroom activities and projects.

Each art activity provides students the opportunity to be creative as they complete an original piece of artwork. Lessons also make strong connections to English Language Arts and Social Studies learning standards.

Students are presented with new vocabulary words as they are exposed to classical artists and their works of art. Researching artists and the historic period of time in which they lived is also stressed. Written reports and oral presentations on their art research is another way that the art program connects to the core subject.

Students' artwork may be displayed at each school as part of an art display or bulletin board, submitted for an art contest, or displayed at a district art exhibits. Artwork also is sent home on a regular basis.
