In Music, your child is introduced to note reading and playing of the recorder and piano. Basic musical concepts and theory are taught through songs, musical games and improvisation with other classmates. This program is designed as a foundation to enrich and complement the future study of an individual instrument, and culminates with a class concert performance for family and friends!
In Art, using literature and life experiences, students will create their own artwork using a variety of techniques such as painting, sculpture, printing, collage and more. Students will create and develop their own work independently, with guidance from the instructor. This class helps students develop and hone their relationship with self-expression, adding purpose and meaning to their artwork. All of the artwork created will be presented at a year-end gallery walk for family and friends! Music and Art Makers is led by Brenna Fisher and Colleen Itzen, a teaching team who collaborate together on the curriculum to create a fun and meaningful class experience for your child! Same as Music II and Art II.
