The EMS art program takes pride in motivating students to express themselves visually and creatively while building strong/positive relationships.  Students explore various techniques, artists, media, and history.  In art class, students will focus on the basic skills in art:  elements/principles of design, drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, and glass/ceramics.  

Our EMS art program gives your student(s) the ability to

  • Learn to trust their creative intelligence.
  • Learn to identify aesthetic qualities in a variety of artwork and in the environment.
  • Learn about history and culture through art.
  • Learn to more effectively use their senses to explore the world.
  • Use both verbal and nonverbal methods to express abstract ideas and emotions.
  • Learn the language of visual art so that they may have a precise vocabulary in which to express their ideas.
  • Practice problem solving and critical thinking.
  • Learn concepts and techniques that will give them control of the visual images they produce.
  • Accept differences and celebrate uniqueness.
  • Build Positive relationships.

Students’ art accomplishments can be seen in every hallway throughout the school!
