Art Information

General Program Information:

The art program at Elmer Thienes - Mary Hall Elementary School is a program of hands - on involvement as well as of general appreciation for visual art through cultural, historic, scientific, perspectives.  Our program includes cross curricular connections and supports objectives contained within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Students experience a variety of media and become more proficient with both tools and techniques as they progress through each grade.  Additionally, the students enjoy viewing and critiquing the work of the Masters. Often, their experience includes creating a personal work of art in the style of a specific artist.

Kindergarten-Grade 6 classes meet once weekly for 40 minutes.
