The art program at Kelly Elementary is process oriented.  Children experience a variety of media, learning new skills and building on previously learned techniques.  Art appreciation is taught through looking at art, talking about art and studying various artists and cultures throughout time.  The art program grows each year through this multimedia approach to creativity and problem solving.


It is strongly recommended that your child wear older clothes on art days.  Although paint shirts are available, accidents do happen.  Most stains are removable if they are pretreated and then laundered.


Most artwork is kept in portfolios until the annual art show in the spring.  Your child’s best work is then selected for display.  Other works are kept in the portfolio as a means of assessment.


You can help encourage your child’s interest in art by providing art materials at home.  If the family vacation includes a trip to a city with a museum, stop in and visit!  You’ll be surprised at how much your child can teach you about art!
