Welcome to the Art Room 
@ West Haverstraw Elementary School!

Art Teacher: Karen Baumann

The Art Education program at West Haverstraw Elementary builds a foundation for developing knowledge, skills and processes for visual literacy and creative expression. 

Art lessons are based on the Elements and Principles in Art, National Art Standards, and the Studio Habits of Mind for Artists. 

Students learn to communicate their ideas, opinions and feelings through drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, clay, mixed media, written word and discussions.

The WHES Art Room is always buzzing with excitement!
