When we tell students at Stephen Olney Elementary to draw, paint, sculpt, and build, they get the picture. From a young age, our students are encouraged to get out of their comfort zone and create work that is inspiring to them but also presents a little bit of a challenge. We show students that uniqueness is a gift, and art class is a time to learn various art forms, about artistic geniuses, and their own styles.
Of course, art is not only taught in the traditional art class model, but our art instructor provides a stimulating and exhilarating environment for students to create in. Whether students are getting their hands messy with paint, sticking decals to a creation they’ve made, drawing using different techniques, or learning about different mediums, students are creating their own artistic pallet and the encouragement from our educators colors their world.
