Curriculum description: Visual Arts are integral to the curriculum at MDS. Through art, students can explore and construct a sense of self, as well as further develop their understanding of the world around them. During art class, students engage with historical, social, and cultural perspectives. They are encouraged to think and articulate their thoughts in new ways and through a variety of media. In art class, students create! For elementary school students, classroom units of inquiry are integrated and supported through the art curriculum. Concepts are further explored and developed in Middle School and students are able to use art as a means of understanding perspective and expressing themselves.
