This year your child will be part of an exciting visual-arts education program with Ms. Holland. Students in art class will:img_3879.jpg

  • explore the great art, artists and cultures of the world.
  • develop skills to understand and appreciate artwork.
  • participate in hands on activities.
  • develop critical thinking skills.

Unlike many other subject areas, the arts introduce students to ways of thinking that are based on imagination and judgment.  The arts encourage students to think and learn in a variety of ways, helping them to develop increased language and logic skills.  

One of the most exciting aspects of art education for students is creating their own artwork.  This year your child will begin to see the world through the eyes of an artist and develop critical thinking skills that will last a lifetime.


Este año nuestros estudiantes formarán parte de un programa emocionante de artes visual con Sra. Holland. Estudiantes en este curso de arte:


  • explorarán los artistas, las culturas y el gran arte del mundo.
  • desarrollarán técnicas para entender y apreciar obras de arte.
  • participarán en actividades artísticas interactivas.
  • desarrollarán técnicas de pensamiento crítico.

A diferencia de muchas otras materias escolares, las artes introducen a los estudiantes a maneras de pensar basadas en la imaginación y juicio. Las artes animan a los estudiantes a pensar y aprender en varias maneras, ayudándolos a desarrollar mejores técnicas de lógica y de lenguaje.

Uno de los aspectos más emocionantes de la educación del arte para los estudiantes es crear sus propias obras de arte. Este año los estudiantes comenzarán a ver el mundo a través de los ojos de un artista y desarrollarán técnicas de pensamiento crítico que durarán toda una vida.
