Mr. Bender

Welcome to Mr Bender's Homepage for the 2018-2019 art program.

The art program will enable each child to understand, appreciate, create, and enjoy art. Just as the arts provide a key to understanding the world around them, a child’s own artwork can be a means for expressing their own unique view of the world. Art is a discipline that is different from all others. As opposed to the one right answer approach art teaches divergent thinking. Complete literacy includes the ability to understand, respond to and talk about visual images.

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

William Butler Yeats
