Our K-5 students meet weekly in SHA’s inspiring art studio. Middle School students are invited to explore art projects and principals through our enrichment program. The Art Program focuses on a solid understanding of the elements and principles of design, along with a great appreciation for the history of art. The art curriculum is designed to mirror the development of art as civilization has developed over time, moving from simple symbolic marks characteristic of the Prehistoric Era to realistic images to unique, abstract images of expression. In addition, students create projects to celebrate Jewish and secular holidays and the seasons throughout the year. Students work in many different mediums to explore line, shape, color, space, size, texture, value, composition, balance, rhythm, contrast and unity – all while experience the pleasure of creating beautiful things.
