Welcome to Art
Dear Parents and Students,
It's a joy everyday to be able to enjoy art through the eyes of my students. I look forward to the many days to come.
The Art Program at the Elementary Level is based on the Pennsylvania State Standards and the Upper St. Clair Benchmarks. The students are introduced to a wide variety of materials, techniques, artists, concepts, and 21st century art skills. They are encouraged to use the information from the instruction and demonstrations in innovative and expressive ways, solving problems independently, and learning from their experiences. Students gain dexterity and control as they work in a variety of media and styles. Classroom studies are enriched and reinforced through the art projects that link learning across the academic curriculum.
