Art is experiential at New Morning School. Children to express themselves through various media. The children are given parameters for an art project. They work within the media provided to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. We proudly display this potpourri of expressions in the hallways for all to see.
Art also encompasses art appreciation. When the elementary class studied French culture, they studied about impressionist painters, such as Claude Monet and Georges Seurat. They also experimented with pointillism.Often an artist’s work is a stepping off point for the students to create pictures in the style of a particular artist. Students have created flower paintings in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe that are proudly displayed in the school lobby.
