In addition to classroom art projects, formal art instruction is provided for our Kindergarten through 6th grade students. Our focus is on the exploration of great artists of the past and present through hands-on activities. The child’s development of artistic perception and creative expression is nurtured through the study of famous art pieces and participating in engaging 2- and 3-dimensional activities.
Emphasis is placed on using different media, exploring the uses of shapes and space, color theory, uses of texture and design, and appreciating the work of others. Our project are displayed year round in our hallways and a spring art fair showcase student achievements. Art is an important part of children’s development and Mountain Peak is dedicated to keeping that creativity flowing.
