Art (PK to 6)
From paleolithic cave paintings to contemporary artists’ work, students at Greene Street Friends School learn about art from around the world and across time.  Students use a wide variety of media including paint, clay, fibers, photography, and digital design.  This year, Georgia O'Keeffe and Wassily Kandinsky will inspire pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students as they explore shapes and mixing colors.  First and second grades will take a field trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as they study art from India.  Third and fourth grades practice their design skills as they explore about Pop Art and fifth and sixth grade students will learn about the art of our world's five major religions.  

Through this diversity, students have the opportunity to make personal connections and to discover themes among the artworks.  Students will come away with the understanding that people of every culture throughout history have made art and that they themselves are a part of this tradition.
