ArtKindergarten and elementary students
receive instruction in art once per week. In kindergarten art students gain skill in drawing, painting and crafts. Students begin by gaining experience in drawing various lines and basic shapes. Soon students are drawing animals, houses and other things. Students express themselves by painting pictures with tempera paint. Seasonal projects add interest. First through sixth grade art students
are involved in drawing, painting, crafts, printmaking and making sculpture of various kinds. Students are also exposed to art appreciation and art history through audio visuals and worksheets. Seasonal projects round out the offering. Secondary School students
receive instruction in art every day. Middle School art students
do fun projects designed to hold their interest and help them gain artistic skills. Drawing, painting, crafts, clay, sculpture, sand casting, and wood burning projects among others supply a large variety of art experiences. High School art students
begin by receiving instruction in basic drawing. As their time in art progresses they learn how to draw still life, landscapes, animals and people. A unit on color gives the student experience in painting a color wheel, value scales, intensity chart and warm and cool colors. Paintings in a variety of media are done. Students also do crafts, scratch art, linoleum printing, sculpture and clay. Mosaics are a favorite in which students apply mosaics to table tops, chairs and to a variety of other interesting and creative surfaces brought in by the student. Interest can also be added to the furniture with painted designs.
