Art is displayed throughout our school by grade level is not chosen to only showcase the delight we have in our creative students, but to also highlight expertise learned in class. Creativity is not an exclusive skill reserved only for those who identify as artists or for those who regularly create artwork. It is for all of us. Our weekly art class is taught by an exceptionally skilled art teacher who seeks to inspire and teach all children to express their own unique, original ideas and to discover the joy of creative expression and to help develop skills in drawing, painting, calligraphy, and sculpture. By encouraging their “beautiful oops,” our students delight in watching themselves grow as artists, and the art they learn to produce from this place of freedom is stunning. By teaching our students about important artists and art movements, students learn not only history, but that they, along with historical figures, can persist and create.
