Lower School Arts Subject Overview

Students in Lower School art classes are introduced to the basic elements and principles of art. Their exploration begins with simpler elements like color, line, and form and builds to a more complex study and execution of principles like unity, balance, and emphasis. 

Students are introduced to both classical and contemporary artists from around the world.  Recognizing the artist's approach--noticing how the artist uses color, shape, and medium to create their art--leads to brainstorming on the part of students about how they too can include these elements in their own works of art.
