- The Lower School art curriculum emphasizes attainment of specific skills and has a strong multicultural emphasis. Areas of discussion include elements of art, principles of design, creative art process, art history, and art criticism. Skills are taught sequentially and are strengthened and augmented with each successive grade level.
- Studio arts are a part of the weekly curriculum for all Lower School students. Training in direct observational drawing and painting and the use of a wide variety of media begins in Kindergarten.
- Introductory lessons focus on multi-sensory experiences so that students develop associations between what they see and touch. Students learn to perceive and begin to name visual elements such as line, color, texture, and shape.
- A multidisciplinary approach prevails, encouraging all students to view art as an important and valuable part of their lives. Student work is proudly displayed from every grade level throughout The School.
