For our 幼儿计划 students, creative projects are a mainstay of their curriculum and you'll often see smocked children painting their Thanksgiving turkey or using a straw to blow paint "Thing One's" blue hair. 在低年级, students are introduced to the elements of art and principles of design during weekly art classes. 学生 use a variety of media including acrylics, clay, colored pencil, pastels, and watercolor. 在每个年级, the curriculum incorporates age-appropriate art history and introduces the students to some of “The Masters” and their works.
Once a student reaches the seventh grade, the curriculum broadens to include a basic introduction to the birth of art “–isms,” where we explore a range of historic and contemporary art styles. 学生 explore a variety of mediums and applications, and practice techniques for each. We encourage a wide variety of ideas and celebrate unique solutions to many problems, both in and out of the traditional classroom mentality. Perhaps the most exciting part of this class is their participation in the student art show at the end of the school year, which includes art from all studio and graphic design classes from grade 7 through grade 12.
在高中, students have multiple options for creative expression in the studio and digital lab. Courses are designed to encourage experimentation with idea development and a variety of materials and techniques. 学生 experience different ways of making, 以发展技能为目标, 发展创造力, and communicating messages visually. Emphasis is placed on practicing each step of the artistic process, 从初稿到展示, ultimately fostering student choice, 增长, 和反射.
