Horace Mann Art Program
Our K-5 visual art program is designed to foster confidence and develop artistic expression through a high level of engagement, positive reinforcement, and peer learning. In their weekly art workshops, student-artists experiment with a variety of fine art materials and tools, while working with specific visual art techniques. They view and discuss works by both historical and contemporary artists, inclusive of men and women from all over the world. Through this exploration student-artists gain an extensive vocabulary of artists’ names, art movements and art terms as they come to understand the importance of both “process” and “product”. Grade-level units are standards-based, creating a scaffolded pathway of artistic growth and learning from TK through to fifth grade. Husky artists benefit from the rigor of instruction, while each being allowed the space to find his or her unique voice. They are encouraged to take risks and have fun!!!
