Everyone has an imagination. The art program at Merritt Creek Academy shows children that creating art is a good way to make choices and solve problems. Every step involves making a decision: what color to use, what size, and with every choice, the object becomes more and more their own. The art program develops qualities of teamwork, flexibility, appreciation, and respect for other ideas and personal expressions. It is the goal of this program to provide all students with hands-on exploration of a variety of art mediums. The students are also taught to recognize and appreciate the significance of artistic contributions throughout history and across cultures. As students see their art work displayed throughout the school they experience pride in their accomplishments which expands their level of self confidence.
