2018 Doodle for Google Contest
Kindergarten students were introduced to the annual Doodle 4 Google contest.  Their big question is "What Inspires me?"  Students will be creating doodles in art class.  
Doodles are judged based on artistic skill, creativity and theme communication which is expressed in both the artwork and the written statement.

Art Classes PK-6



Children are given educational artistic experiences where each can be creative, thoughtful and confident.   Projects are designed to deepen students 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, problem solve 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 annual Art Show & Spring Concert in May.  Artwork will come home with your child in late May/early June.  If you are curious to know what your child is working on please read the monthly art project list below.
