At the heart of Hancock Day School's Lower School art curriculum is the belief that every young person is an artist. Every year, students cycle through units in paint, collage, clay, construction, and printmaking. We aim to inspire our youngest artists to experiment with art techniques and materials, reflect on their creative work, and feel pride in the outcome.
Middle School Art expands fundamentals, reinforces elements and principles, and develops self-expression. It also provides a modified choice-based approach to instruction which fosters an outlet for individualized expression, creative thinking, and problem-solving.
The art program also works cross-curricular with other middle school subjects to encourage students to develop a broader awareness of interconnectivity.
