Art is taught to all students one period a week using the Core Knowledge Sequence, aligned with the Massachusetts Arts Curriculum Framework, as the basis for our curriculum.
Our visual arts program encompasses many aspects of art education including art history, art criticism, aesthetics and art production. The elements and principals of design are introduced and reinforced throughout the course of the child’s art experience. Local artists, art masters and a variety of media components are introduced building on previous knowledge and introducing new skills.
Through the leadership of our visual arts teacher we provide the tools and environment to encourage each child’s artistic nature. Students are invited to display their work for the school community as well as the community at large. Artwork is displayed building wide throughout the school year, on our website and highlighted on an artist of the month bulletin board. We invite you to view a small sampling of our students work in the gallery below.
