MVCS Art

Art is currently offered for preschool-6th grade at the Elementary School and 7th-8th at the Jr/Sr High School. Elementary students are taught age-appropriate art skills and techniques through individual and collaborative projects. Each student has as much time as they require to thoroughly complete each project, and peer-to-peer critique is a core component of every class. Weather permitting and project dependent, art classes are also taught outdoors to enhance students’ artistic experience. Listed are a few unique projects and units that both Elementary and Jr/Sr High School students have completed during this 2019-2020 school year:

  • Papier mache hot air balloons (many real ones fly over the school!)

  • “Names of Jesus” graffiti mural

  • Native American Heritage Month – “Tribal Tribute” Art

  • Woven Christmas Trees
