About our Art Offerings for Discovery Kindergarten - Grade 6
Where in the school can you find mathematicians, scientists, anthropologists, poets, potters, and painters? In the art room, of course! From grades Discovery Kindergarten through 6th, our Elementary and Intermediate art program progresses sequentially through its own curriculum and naturally becomes part of the inter-disciplinary process.
Art class is held once a week for 45 minutes and focuses on art specific standards and is biblically based. Students are introduced to various aspects of art including materials and techniques, elements and principles of art and design, art history, aesthetics and art criticism.
Science, math, and technology also become part of the process of making art. Language skills improve as students use art terminology and description to respond orally and in written form to their own work, and the work of others. All art students are encouraged to do their best and to use their talents to honor and glorify God with their artwork. As a mini art community we look for ways to create art that inspires, encourages and shines light into our school, our city and culture. Students have the opportunity to showcase their work at our annual school wide Night of Fine Arts and through local ACSI Art Festivals.
