Clear Some Space on Your Fridge...Art Class has Begun!

Weekly classes have resumed in our Art Studio and our students have been busy creating new masterpieces.  Upcoming lessons in our newly relocated studio - complete with outdoor space and beautiful natural light - are tailored to each grade level and will cover such topics as color theory, line drawing and collage.

Parent volunteers work with teachers during these classes to make sure the visual arts are a consistent part of your child's education for the entire school year.  The space is truly a safe environment for your children to not only express themselves through art, but also build technical skills and even learn about art history.  In the classes, students are encouraged to talk about their ideas and their inspirations to foster a greater visual awareness of the world around them, including all of the diverse cultures represented at Gardner Street School.

Stay tuned for more updates and lesson topics!
