The Art Program

Art classes at Kalamazoo Country Day School provide students with the opportunity to experiment, learn technical skills, and broaden their aesthetic awareness. The art program exposes students to visual art through a variety of mediums ranging from the traditional to technology-based visual arts.

From an early age, students learn the vocabulary and concepts associated with the visual arts. They learn how to use various tools, processes, and mediums. Beginning in the early grades, students develop skills of observation and grow in their ability to describe, interpret, evaluate and respond to the highly visual world ahead of them.

Kindergarten to 5th grade students are exposed to a variety of fun and exciting art from many different cultures. They will engage in art projects using an array of materials from clay to paint as well as some modern mediums.
