The Moravian Academy’s Lower School visual arts program guides students in kindergarten through fifth grade to use their creativity, while developing skills in critical thinking and problem solving to create beautiful works of art. With each projected that is completed a student builds self-confidence and earns a sense of accomplishment.
When creating art, students are encouraged to take inspiration from artists, multi-cultural explorations, inter-curricular connections, their unique imaginative spirit, and the world at large. Students' artistic visions are realized utilizing the principles of design and practice with a variety of artistic mediums.
Our students try a wide variety of art making mediums including: painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, ceramics, plaster, paper mache, sewing, mixed media, recycled materials, and computers. By gaining proficiency in each medium, students have an opportunity to develop their fine motor skills and an appreciation for craftsmanship.
We celebrate the culmination of each year in our visual arts program with a student art exhibition presented on our Church Street Campus. Artwork from every student in kindergarten through fifth grade is displayed, alongside a number of collaborative works of art and animation projects in this impressive exhibit.
