Michelle Cooper, Art Teacher Grades Kinder-8th
The art program at Saint Joseph School is designed to enrich and compliment the curriculum at each grade level in the school. In the classroom, every child is an artist and our goal is to nourish their creativity and imagination while building self-confidence in their ability.
We explore the elements and principles of art and begin to develop a vocabulary for creative discussion. Using these tools and a variety of mediums and visuals, the children produce wonderful projects. They are introduced to many of the great artists and their styles of painting throughout history and learn to make critical decisions about what they see.
Our goal is to give the children a broader view of the world by building an awareness and appreciation of art in everyday life.
