All of our students benefit from planned activities that help them express themselves freely and constructively. Our Savior School encourages this expression through dramatic play, music, movement, and various art mediums.
Arts Attack Program – Kindergarten
To teach every child how to express himself/herself through art. This demands that the students learn to see and experience the world in a different way. The language of art, like the language of words, requires the learning of skills and concepts that will allow the free flow of expression.
The Art instructors teach the elements and principles of art and drawing in a developmental and sequential way. They also plan activities to study the art of other artists, cultures and historical periods. In all areas of study, the emphasis is on motivation and self-expression.
Recognizing that children learn what they are excited about, the subjects of the Arts Attack lessons have been selected through years of working with students in the classroom. The focus of the hands-on lessons is to utilize the process of visualizing, synthesizing and expressing through a wide variety of media.
A unique strength of this program is that it has been created not in theory but in practice in classrooms with the help of dozens of teachers and thousands of students.
