The Art room is a place to learn, explore, imagine and create. Every year your child will have the opportunity to learn about new methods and ideas. They will explore other cultures, artists, and new media. They will observe and imagine, discuss and assess what art is and how and why it’s made.
Art is everywhere. Students will be able to identify art in the world and it’s importance and function in everyday life.
Art is emotional. Students will learn to express what is inside of them as they see how other artists have used art as a way to express feelings, ideas and beliefs.
