Developing Creativity - Westminster's Art Program

Developing Creativity 

The Art Program begins in Kindergarten and continues through the 8th grade. Through a series of studio projects, students gain knowledge and skills in the materials and processes of art, the components of design, and the variety of forms of expression, as well as an introduction to the history of art.

Aside from the honing of skills and the satisfaction of creating numerous original art works throughout the years, the children learn many far-ranging lessons in art class: that problems can have more than one solution; that there are many ways to see and interpret the world; that in complex forms of problem-solving, purposes can change with circumstance and opportunity; that small differences can have large effects; and that the limits of our language do not define the limits of our cognition. All students are encouraged to believe in themselves as artists and to engage in creative activity throughout their lives.
