Early Childhood & Elementary
Students in PreK through 5th grade receive Visual Arts education in twice-weekly classes. The visual arts curriculum explores the art of other cultures, both in its form and in its context. Critical thinking skills are strengthened as creativity is explored through a variety of 2-D and 3-D art.
IB MYP Visual Arts
The role of the Arts in MYP IB is to “stimulate the imagination, challenge perceptions, and develop creative and analytical skills” within the context of both Visual and Performing Arts. Involvement in arts courses leads to student understanding of the arts in cultural and historical contexts, which in turn supports the development of an “inquiring and empathetic world view” (IBO Arts Subject Brief). Middle School students explore visual arts in twice weekly classes, through a variety of mediums including paper mache, paint, clay, drawing and sketching.
