Visual Arts

Lower School Visual Arts

Art classes begin in PK and meet weekly throughout the Lower School. Students explore a wide range of media and complete individual and collaborative projects. Painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and work with clay, fiber, and found materials are all part of the curriculum. An open studio approach encourages young artists to be inventive and original. The curriculum is designed to build on art skills and experiences as students advance through the grades. Students are introduced to art history and learn to appreciate different art forms through viewing original works of art and use of the Smartboard technology. Art projects are often designed to complement the classroom curriculum. All Lower School Arts

In keeping with the integrated approach to learning in all divisions at Brimmer, art projects are often interdisciplinary in nature, with attention paid to the cultural significance and historical context of the material. Students learn about the artistic process, experiment with a variety of art forms, and expand their critical vocabulary. All Middle School Arts
