The visual arts play an essential role in the Lower School curriculum. Young children are encouraged to experiment with a wide variety of media, techniques, and materials as they stretch their thinking, develop their craft, and reflect upon their creative work. The art teacher encourages students to observe closely, reach beyond their preconceived abilities, take risks, and become independent thinkers. Students learn through active participation in the creative process and participate in visual arts classes beginning in Pre-Nursery. Our art curriculum includes explorations in drawing, painting, design, woodworking, ceramics, sculpture, photography, and mixed media.
