 "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." 
Pablo Picasso

We are so excited to have a new art teacher this year at Northwood! Not only will she be working with classes during the school day, but she will also be offering after school classes as well!

Art is a multi-faced lens; genres of art, materials used individual expression, and instructional experiences. When young children are given the opportunity to explore and create in a safe, inspired environment, they will build confidence at their developmental level to become independent artists free of adult intervention. We strongly believe that art skills develop at their own pace and every step counts.

Our fine art program exposes students to a spectrum of art by master artists from a variety of time periods. All grade levels have State Standards in Visual arts which are aligned with art instruction. Each grade level has an overarching theme encompassing the elements of art (color, line, form, texture, shape). 

Parents can view samples of student art posted in the display case between rooms 3 and 4. 

Our art program is paid for by our PFC with funds raised from donations and school fundraisers! Please click here to make a tax deductible donation to our PFC.
