Arts & Music
Lower School students have art and music classes multiple times per week. The Lower School art program uses a variety of media and techniques to enhance fine and gross motor skills and communication. Many activities are designed specifically to develop fine motor skills and visual-spatial thinking. Lessons include everything from textiles and clay to computer animation, all designed to build creative communication, visual vocabulary and problem-solving skills.
As an affiliate of the High Museum, The Howard School often collaborates with the museum to further integrate visual arts into educational curriculum. Through this partnership, affiliate schools have the opportunity to showcase our High School studio artwork at the museum n the summer of 2015. Our students’ works explore a variety of media. From documented installation work to large format photography to mixed media, including an 8 ft Styrofoam robot and 3D computer model renderings, you will see some incredible pieces of art from our students.
