The Lippman School's art curriculum enhances our school's curriculum, enabling students to make authentic connections between their arts learning and areas such as science,
language and culture, social studies, technology, and math. Young artists develop an art vocabulary while investigating historical works of art, artists, and global cultures.
Children learn fundamental elements and principles of design in addition to painting, drawing, printmaking, collage and multi-dimensional pieces.
The environment within our visual arts program encourages each child:
- to become aesthetically sensitive, observant, alert, aware, perceptive, critical, and analytical
- to broaden an ability for expression within the visual arts
- to solve problems independently using ideas and solutions which are uniquely personal
- to understand, use, and develop criteria for the creative and evaluative process
- to develop a deeper sense of pride as the result of growth, learning, and creative effort
In the middle school years, students progress to more advanced studies of the visual arts to include:
- Art History
- Art Criticism
