Fine Arts and Artisanal Crafts

by Great Oak School October. 25, 2017 1163 views

Daily artistic experiences in a variety of media provide opportunities for students to explore a wide range of traditional artistic forms. Students learn modeling and sculpture with beeswax and clay figures in the early grades. Students begin painting with wet-on-wet watercolor in the 1st grade. Drawing is a core skill for students illustrating their main lesson books. Many projects are undertaken throughout the year where students begin exploring many forms of artistic expression that get more advanced as they progress through the grades. Sixth graders worked with Senora Hilda on making masks right in time for Day of the Dead.
