Art Classes PK-6

Children are given educational artistic experiences where each can be creative, thoughtful and confident.   Projects are designed to deepen students understanding of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design.  Students work on developing various art making skills and techniques while being encouraged to be original, problem solve and to use their imaginations.  

All artwork is saved for the annual Art Show & Spring Concert in May.  Artwork will come home with your child in late May/early June.
