It is the goal of Vilonia Primary to provide a space your child can grow in many ways, with the emphasis on creativity through the use of the elements and principles of art. To develop these understanding of these areas, students will participate in various types of 2-D and 3-D art as well as art history. Our focus will be on the process and experience of creating art and what can be learned from that experience, which results in some great looking art pieces. It’s our objective to provide an environment where every child’s effort is celebrated. Art can be that one bright light, giving them the sense of success and achievement.
Art has value in your child’s life. Art provides: a means of communication and self-expression, serves as an emotional release, provides decision making opportunities and requires high order thinking skills, aids in physical coordination, strengthens self-concepts and confidence, develops creative thinking, develops appreciation for the individuality of others, heightens aesthetic awareness and sensitivity, and generates joy!
We live in a creative society. Your child’s experience in the art program here at VPS will help them gain an appreciation for art and have a better understanding of the world they live in.
