At Laurel Meadow, we believe...
essential for all students;
is a sequential process integrated with other fields of study;
art is the
universal language of visual communication and refines
allows for the manipulation of different media/technology for
the production of original and unique works of art;
provides opportunities to increase a positive self concept; and
is an on-going process and essential for life-long learning.
The art room at
Laurel Meadow is a wonderful place for students, preschool through
grade five, to be creative while they learn. Students visit the art
room once a week for 45 minutes. In the art room, students explore
the elements and principles of design, art history and cultural
studies, the integration of a variety of topics to foster creativity
and expression, and methods of evaluating and judging art while
using two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques. Students are
exposed to a variety of media and processes by which they exercise
new found skills in creative problem solving.
Elementary Art actively seeks opportunities to exhibit the fine art
work produced by our students. Throughout the year you will find
selected art work hanging in the school hallways, office and at
special events or locations like the Hanover Arts & Science
Festival, the Hanover School Board Office, Youth Art Month, and in
neighboring businesses. Please feel free to stop by and see our
students’ art on display!
“Be ART SmART!”
Please make sure to send an old
shirt/art shirt as part of your child's school supplies.
