Lower School Art

Lower School Art students are exposed to artists, art periods, geographic locations and time periods with every project. Through art, students learn about their emotions, how to communicate with others, and how to observe and analyse through art. Lower School Art is a starting point for students to gain excitement about their future as an artist.
