The Art Curriculum is based on the National Core Arts Standards, which is divided into four content areas:

Creating (works of art)
Presenting (choosing and preparing artwork for display)
Responding (interpreting, classifying, comparing and contrasting works of art)
Connecting (why people make art, art in a cultural and historical context)

Students have the opportunity to view, analyze and discuss the artwork of many artists as well as create their own. They view each other's art and learn how to give positive comments. Third and fourth graders create artist's statements. 
 Students are introduced to artwork from all eras and places, as well as 'meeting' the artists who created them.

Artwork can be viewed on the bulletin boards outside the art room and at time in the display cabinet in the lobby. An art exhibit of selected student work is held at the Barrington Town Library in April. In the late spring, all fourth graders display one piece of art at the Fourth Grade Art Show which is scheduled the same evening as the Band and Choral Concert in the spring.

All student art work goes home at the end of the school year.
