Visual Arts

Art teachers in CREC schools believe that art education is essential to the development of the whole child.  While learning about art in a variety of hands-on classes, students are not only learning how to produce artist pieces, but are also developing critical thinking skills, self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, creativity, and self-motivation necessary for success.

Please note:  At CREC, we follow the National Core Art Standards in the way that our art curriculum is written.  We utilize the four pillars:  Creating; Performing/Presenting/Producing; Responding; and Connecting.

How to Support Your Art Student at Home: 

You can best support your child’s love of art by asking questions about what they are learning in school, encouraging descriptive words when your child talks about their own and other’s artwork, visiting museums together, creating an “art space” at home where your child can create pieces of art, and encouraging your child to select artwork for “at home art shows” for family and friends.
