The art room at CRES is a colorful space where creativity thrives. The curriculum is informed by Harvard University’s Eight Habits of Studio Mind: Develop Craft, Engage & Persist, Envision, Express, Observe, Reflect, Stretch & Explore, Understand Art Worlds. These Habits not only align with the Maine standards for art education, but also grow 21st century skills. Direct instruction is intentionally very limited in the art room so that students have time to explore, design and create in a way that allows for authentic self expression and artistic behavior.

The goals and expectations in art follow the core values of our school:
