Art

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

For the 2019 - 2020 school year, the Northwood Parent Faculty Club has purchased a subscription to an art curriculum called Arts Attack. The goal of the program is to teach every child how to express themselves through art. The language of art, like the language of words, requires the learning of skills and concepts that will allow the free flow of expression.

Arts Attack teaches the elements and principals of art and drawing in a developmental and sequential way. 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. In all areas of study, the emphasis is on motivation and self-expression. The focus of the hands on lessons is to utilize the process of visualizing, synthesizing and expressing through a wide variety of media.

Check out our Facebook Arts Attack album for pictures of student art throughout the school year, and visit our rotating displays in the hallway display cases outside of room 3 and the Faculty Lounge/room 10.
