The art program鈥檚 instruction is based on reinforcing basic techniques and increasing the students鈥 familiarity of the elements of art and principles of design. The projects deepen the students鈥 understanding and appreciation of the world of art and continue developing their fine motor skills and cross-curricular knowledge. Students become more adroit in their use of the creative process to plan, organize and problem solve while creating their artwork. They also continue developing their ability of self-expression and craftsmanship within a variety of topics, materials, tools, and techniques. The foundation for our art program is built upon a framework for teaching, learning, and assessing at all grade levels using the AERO standards and performance indicators. Through a wide range of assessments, our curriculum encourages the consistent growth of critical thinking skills through problem solving based on everyday situations.
