Picasso stated that “Every child is an artist.” The Lower School art curriculum at Delaware County Christian School encourages students to be visual thinkers and creative problem solvers, enabling the students to develop skills for advancement in the realm of technology. Students learn visual literacy through art history, art theory, aesthetics, art appreciation, and criticism, as well as the creative process. At the elementary level solid technical studio skills are explored through a wide range of materials, including drawing, painting, pastels, sponging, marbling, sculpture, metals, wood, and pottery.
Art is a reflection of God’s creation and expresses that beauty through the creative process. Art at the Lower School allows students to enjoy God’s creation and interpret and evaluate life experiences in a way that fosters character for the future of every child.
