A spirited October Putting the heart in art @ svdp


Art is everywhere. It’s the design of your water bottle and cereal box. It’s the songs you sing in church or in the car and that quilt your grandmother made you. It’s built into every element of the car you drive to school and the books stacked on your bedside table. It is all art, and it affects our lives in ways both subtle and obvious, expected and unexpected.
Visual literacy is a key component to growing our students into well educated and empathetic citizens of the world. It builds a child's understanding of different cultures and languages. It engages the learner and enhances the viewer's experience no matter the mode or expression -- a graphic novel, video game, or film -- to name a few. Learning to read and create visual content is essential.

Visual Arts

The Arts Attack curriculum lesson plans are a comprehensive video-based art curriculum - teaching the art elements and principles, drawing techniques, media exploration and artist appreciation.
Students blend colors, explore lines and shapes and design with symmetry. Students learn about the great artists and replicate their work by imitation. Students work with acrylics, oil pastels and water colors to create individual works of art!

Performing Arts

Performing arts in education provide students with the opportunity to engage the mind, the body and emotions into a collaborative expression of all that it means to be human. Through study and performance, students explore and present great themes and ideas.

Remember our Theatre & Art Fest is on November 14th starting at 4:00pm. All are invited to attend. Come and enjoy the performances.

Other than entertainment, music has a very important role in our lives. It develops our brain and the abilities associated with it. It assists in the development of language and reasoning, pattern recognition, and supports the social and emotional well being of our students.
