Animate your Endless Imagination
At St. Peter's the visual arts is an integral component of every child’s early learning experience. Exposure to visual art in preschool and elementary school not only contributes to a child’s artistic and creative growth but also to the development of perceptual, cognitive, language, and social skills.
Preschool-3 and Junior Kindergarten students are the most prolific artists at St. Peter’s. Our youngest students explore their artistic talents in the classroom and during enrichment class taught by our art teacher in the St. Peter’s Art Studio. The intent is to awaken and challenge fresh minds to be aesthetically aware and relentlessly expressive. Art encourages children to animate their endless imaginations, which inspires their creative processing for collaboration, problem-solving and decision-making. Art becomes a common language of varied media through which children can express their ideas and cultivate a discerning sensibility toward their visual environment.
