Besides offering a vehicle for creative expression, the art program provides enrichment to an already stimulating curriculum. By examining the works of may fine artists as well as the arts of many cultures, the child can become witness to the unique way that people have recorded their vision of the world and wonders of nature.
Art in the Elementary and Middle School programs takes a theme-based approach to organize, fully explore, and incorporate all media. It uses the works of famous artists to explore the use of themes and the many different ways they can be expressed. Media include pencil, clay, tempura, pastel, oil, acrylics, water color, and fiber. Students work individually and in groups to learn methods and elements of design.
