Preschool Art Education

In the preschools, students receive Art Education through The Creative Curriculum.  Over the course of a school day, the children spend considerable time playing and engaging in interactions in Interest Areas.  One dedicated Interest Area is the Arts Area in which children paint, draw, use clay, and many other creative endeavors.  Other Interest Areas, including Sand & Water as well as classroom Studies on topics such as flowers or animals result in art activities designed by classroom teachers who know how to elaborate on and extend children’s thinking.

School Age Programs Art Education

Our dedicated art teacher instructs students at both school age schools, through regular pull-out art instruction.  Working from lesson plans and collaborating with classroom teachers, the art instructor facilitates the excellent art skills that many of the students possess.

Appropriate supports are provided, empowering students with fine motor deficits and learning issues to fully participate.  Art projects are designed to resonate with the students’ lives and build on their comprehension of the world around them.  Both schools are well-decorated with student-produced artwork.
