The art program is designed to encourage interaction between the cultural arts and to relate itself to all academic areas.  The program encourages children to develop skills necessary for using a variety of media, and it is designed to help them experience success.  A problem-solving approach in art is emphasized so that children will learn to interpret and express individual ideas and feelings.  The program further encourages children to develop an appreciation for the art of yesterday and today, as well as an appreciation for their own creativity.



The children receive instruction in library skills, literature, and assistance in checking out books.
