Preschool art is all about exploration and learning simple skills. It’s about playing with the art mediums and seeing what can be created. Our kids use their imaginations but also learn different technical skills like gluing, tearing, cutting, painting, drawing and coloring. We also try to incorporate religious teaching into art by talking about God and many different Bible stories so they can create artwork from these teachings.
Lower School will dive into the technical aspects of art and also learn different principles and elements. By the end of the year, we will have touched on every principle of art, learning about emphasis, unity, proportion, movement, variety, balance, and pattern and how to successfully incorporate these aspects into their artwork. Students will also learn how use the elements of art texture, form, shape, value, space, color, and line and how these elements add a finished touch to their art pieces. Art is also about reflection on life and the things around us, including the teaching of God and the Bible, and how we can incorporate our understanding of God and the Bible into our artwork.
Upper School is about taking the students’ artwork and skills to the next level. In Lower School, they learned the basic principle and elements, but now it’s time to push their understanding of these skills and build on their technique of the different principles and elements of art. The students will be able to experiment with different mediums, learn about new art and old art, and study the different artists from different time periods. They will also create artwork that reflects Biblical teachings, using the inspiration they get from the different mediums, artists and art periods.
