Art and Design

     The Art and design program offers opportunities to stimulate children’s creativity and imagination, to develop their understanding of colors, form, texture, and pattern, and to use materials and processes effectively, to communicate their ideas and feelings. Through study of the arts, students learn about artistic traditions of their own and other cultures. They learn to link the study of the arts with the study of history, geography, language, culture and human interaction, and gain an appreciation of the great importance of the arts, both as sources of enjoyment and as means of communication in cultures around the world.
