Students in lower school arts classes are introduced to the basic elements and principles of art. Their exploration begins with elements like color, line and form and progresses to a more complex study and execution of principles like unity, balance and emphasis. Students are introduced to classical and contemporary artists. Current events, and popular culture are also an important part of the arts program. Art history, integration of grade level studies, and creative experiences in the classroom are important along with developing an aesthetic sense, taking risks with creative expression, and understanding the visual world.
