The Arts

A young student shows another student their art on a sheet of paper.

Our job as artists and art educators is to teach our students how to see and listen actively, give form to their thoughts, and empower their confidence and belief in their own uniqueness. Art is each child's way to communicate personal thoughts, feelings, and values.

The overriding questions we ask each student to consider are:

  • How do we think like an artist?
  • How do we make art?
  • How do we talk about what we have made?
  • How does the art that we have made connect with the world of art?
