Led by experienced art educators, second graders try their hand at weaving after studying the ancient Mexican craft. Students create original works in the dedicated art studio as part of their six-day class rotation. Your child will maintain an artist’s sketchbook so she can see how much she has grown artistically throughout the year. Music and theatre classes complement the Lower School fine arts curriculum.
Students learn to sing in head voice and practice performing during class as they prepare for their on-stage performance in December. Each year, our second graders perform a Christmas musical. (Years from now your child will distinctly remember the part he played.) Performing for the entire Lower School and scores of parents and grandparents takes real courage—and your second grader has it in spades.
