Art Pre-K - 8th Grade

"He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist."
    ~Saint Francis of Assisi

Art is a fun class where students are able to express themselves. Students will learn about art history, famous artists, art from other lands and cultures, and the elements and principles of art. Lessons are designed with the knowledge that students have varying levels of ability. With that in mind, lessons are created so that the most able and the least able students are equally successful in completing projects.

HOMEWORK FOR ART STUDENTS IN PK-7TH GRADE:
**Tell Mom and Dad all about the project that you worked on in art class for the upcoming Auction**
