Art Classes



Children are given fun and educational artistic experiences where each can be creative, thoughtful and confident.   Projects are designed to deepen student's 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 and to use their imaginations.  Each year students visit the Currier Museum of Art for art enrichment and take an educational tour based on their grade level.  

All artwork is saved for the Art Show & Spring Concert in May.  All artwork will come home with your child in late May/early June.  If you are curious to see what your child is working on please check out the monthly art project list below.
