Kindergarten — Visual Arts

Students have the opportunity to expand and enrich their creative expression through a wide range of tools, materials, textures, and artistic styles. Art projects connect to classroom curriculum, school performances, and art and cultural history lessons. The art program supports students in becoming articulate observers of their world while they joyfully build confidence in their problem solving and art making skills.

Artistic Exploration

  • Exploring simple shapes in the world around them: faces, trees, animals, insects
  • Learning how repetitive patterns are used in world cultures
  • Building confidence in artistic tools: paint brushes, scissors, marking tools
  • Principles of color, color mixing, and texture

Approaches to Artistic Medium and Concepts

  • Abstract painting, tree collage, self-portrait, changemaker art, pattern-based printmaking, dragonfly mixed media, sewn wall hanging or wallet
