LE Visual Art
In the Lower Elementary Art program children learn to think creatively, to use their “right brains,” and to take risks with ideas and materials.They realize that mistakes are opportunities to try something different!
Lower Elementary children transition from symbolic drawing to observational drawing. We offer a broad spectrum of two- and three-dimensional projects: color mixing and painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, self-portraiture, collage and mixed media, and more.
Children also create art in their classrooms, illustrating their writing, building models for their projects, designing scenery and props.
We use the Visual Thinking Strategies curriculum to help children learn critical thinking and observational skills while interacting with works of art.
