The Diocese of Allentown’s elementary art mission is to assist students to use artistic gifts and abilities to glorify God, as they discover and recognize art in the world around them. Learning more about themselves through art expression, they will gain self-confidence in their ability to communicate in the language of art. Studying works and styles of art from other times and cultures will enhance their personal appreciation of art.
Throughout the school year we study various artists and their styles. We use a variety of medium including watercolors, tempera paint, oil pastels, and chalk. We experiment with sculpture, pottery, printmaking, collage, wax relief, as well as mixed media projects. With the elementary grades, literature is incorporated into the art curriculum.
We currently have an on-line art gallery on Artsonia.com. If you haven’t visited our gallery, you have a treat in store for you. It is an amazing website.
