All art classes meet once a week for students in grades K4 through 5th grade:
- K4: 30 minutes
- Grades K5 - 5th : 60 minutes
In the art department we focus on a wide variety of different content areas throughout the school year. We do some drawing, painting, sculpture, crafts, and graphics (printmaking).
Here are the various nuts and bolts:
We integrate our lessons at times with their classroom learning.
All children are required to have a smock at school.
We do keep an annual list of Art Vocabulary terms which are posted in the Art Rooms.
We focus on various Artists throughout the school year in our art lessons.
We truly enjoy working with your children and welcome your questions and expertise.

The Responding to Art presentation allows any interested student in fourth and fifth grade the opportunity to explore understandings about the world around them through the study of a work of art and the artist responsible for its creation. Students may then create a replica of the original and design an aesthetic response in reflection of the work of art. Speeches 2-3 minutes in length will be shared with visitors attending the Richards Art Show on April 20th, 2017.
