  At the River School, art includes art appreciation, as well as hands- on art experiences using a wide variety of methods and materials. We utilize an “artist-of-the-month” program, consisting of eight monthly units. Each unit focuses on one artist and significant works by that artist. Our art program aims to elicit three types of connections for the children:
1. Connection to the artist, his/her times;
2. Connection to the language of art;(line, shape, color, etc.)
3. Connection to self; (I can look at art; I can create my own art.)
