The District 303 K-12 Visual Art learning experience provides students with knowledge and skills in critical and conceptual thinking, visual communication, art awareness and technical proficiency. As a result of these K-12 visual art learning experiences, students will be equipped with the necessary skill sets to succeed as critical participants in the visual world.
Elementary art education addresses organizational principles and expression of ideas. When students create in images, they discover ways to shape and share their ideas with others. They learn to deal with ambiguity, to look at problems from multiple perspectives and to engage in speculative inquiry.
Ferson Creek kindergarten students have art for 30 minutes a week. Students in grades 1 - 5 have art every other week for one hour. We use a variety of materials and techniques to create two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork.
