Art

Teacher: Ms. Bianca Hansen

 

Students in the Fire Island art program utilize a variety of media, found both in new objects and recycled materials from their surroundings, as well as multisensory materials such as clay, plaster craft, tempera, watercolor and building elements, as tools for expression when engaging in the creation of art.  Students are encouraged to seek inspiration from the study of art history, as well as the rich traditions of the world’s cultures, and to see and appreciate art in their own immediate environment.

The early experiences students have while creating art have been shown to have a profound impact on their approach to lifelong learning. With continued creative discovery, children learn how to think critically, solve problems and better express themselves.
