Art Classes

Visual Arts

Be creative.

At St. George’s, we encourage students to explore the arts. Whether it’s painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, or photography, visual arts flourish in our generously sized art room.

Our Curriculum

Early Childhood students participate in a hands-on exploration of visual art. Topics include:

  • understanding the process of art rather than the the product
  • students are exposed to art history, art production, and art criticism
  • drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, clay, and sculpture are explored throughout the year.

Kindergarten through 2nd grade students delve into the world of visual art. Topics include:

  • creating art
  • continuing to learn about art history, art production, and art criticism
  • introduction to Elements of Art: line, color, shape, form, and texture
  • students are taught to ask questions about why art is created and how it is used in society
  • drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, clay, and sculpture are explored throughout the year.

The 3rd – 5th grade art program exposes students to a variety of different art experiences. Topics include:
