Kindergarten Art

We expose students to a variety of media and enable them to explore different art disciplines including drawing, painting, collage, print-making, ceramics and sculpture. They learn fundamental color theory and how to properly care for paint and brushes while they experiment with watercolor and tempera paint. Students learn to cut, glue and balance shapes to create collages. During a unit in ceramics, Kindergarteners roll and join coils to construct coil pots, which they glaze. Sculpture assignments introduce the concept of 3D art and include experiences with paper mâché, puppet-making and mixed-media assemblage. Students work from imagination and observation to produce creative works within the parameters of specific assignments. Individual instruction is given to support and expand developing skills.
