State of "The Art"
A whirlwind of activity and excitement describes the art room at Elmont Elementary. Children come to art class once a week for 45 minutes. They explore many areas while using the creative process. The art room is a place where connections in learning are fostered. Classroom learning and art topics are linked quite often.
"ART HAS MORE THAN ONE RIGHT ANSWER"
. . . is a phrase used to encourage divergent thinking and promote self-esteem. Children take chances which are rewarded in a variety of ways. Class critique, school displays, and local exhibits provide opportunities to see, discuss, and experience the artistic process.
It's true. . .
ART MAKES YOU SMART!
