Brookside Charter's Elementary Studio Program is a sequential art curriculum, developing interaction between each student’s creative expressions and their appreciation for art and design. The Elementary Studio provides maximum opportunity for students to have hands-on experiences developing ideas and skills enhanced by the integration of art history, aesthetics, technology and cultural studies. Classes will encourage perceptual awareness by building on creative and critical problem-solving skills, as well fostering an appreciation for historical and contemporary art works.
