Art

 "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." 
Pablo Picasso

The 2020-2021 art program at Northwood is geared towards bringing our students lessons they can complete at home during their asynchronous time of distance learning. We want to encourage creativity and that every student is an artist. Our art mantra is  "I am positive, I am creative, I am an artist".

The Parent Faculty Club has put an emphasis on the art program for it is something that we can control. Our new art teacher Mrs. Heidenreich, a former art teacher and current Northwood parent, is creating videos for each grade level which students can access through their teacher's clever page.

The goal of the program is to teach every child how to express themselves through art, using their imagination, acquiring new art vocabulary, while having fun in the process. 

Lessons vary using the elements of art and the principles of design. These topics specifically include, but are not limited to, line, color, shape, form, texture, pattern, space, drawing ,self-expression, culture and history, artists and aesthetics, and media exploration. 

Check out our Facebook Art Gallery album for pictures of student art throughout the school year as well as every Friday we post a video displaying our students artwork from the week!
