For students in Kindergarten through Grade Three the art program at Neshobe is based on various units that connect art to themes from student’s classrooms, the local community, and the larger “art world”.  Within each unit, students focus on working with a variety of art media and techniques (watercolor, printmaking, clay, etc.) as well as the elements and principles of design (line, shape, color, form, etc.). At the beginning of Grade Four and continuing through Grade Six the program shifts to a “choice-based” art education model. In this environment students become responsible for choosing which media, techniques, and ideas they would like to work with. In a choice-based art class the teaching of art media and techniques, as well as the elements and principles of design, is still present but the emphasis on learning shifts to idea generation, creative problem-solving, independent thinking, and creative risk-taking. Students are also offered the opportunity and encouraged to participate in art shows, community events, school fundraisers, and community service projects.
