Our Art curriculum emphasizes the process, not the product. This means that our students are free to explore and experiment with a variety of art materials that are available in the classroom each day. The child may choose to practice cutting, painting, drawing with colored pencils, coloring, gluing, or threading during any work period.
Our art curriculum also includes art projects and crafts that the teacher presents to the class. These projects are presented as an option that the child may choose to work on, and the child never feels any pressure to complete a project or make it look a certain way. While we believe that children benefit from instructions on basic artistic techniques, like color-mixing and brush strokes, we feel that art for the young child should primarily be a self-directed expression of creativity, experimentation, and imagination.
