Visual Arts at Morningside Elementary is Georgia Performance Standards
driven, taught through a reflective ethic of care and responsibility, to promote student self-esteem, positive relationships and citizenship. The study of art at MES stimulates the imagination and encourages students to utilize their creative potential in learning about and producing original works of art. Students create art with mixed media, 2-D and 3-D designs, textiles and ceramics, drawing and painting. Students also discuss many artists from past and present to inform their thinking and artwork. The Visual Art program promotes the development of personal and cultural identity for students. Our art instruction provides opportunities for students to work individually and collaboratively to foster social development and cooperative interaction. All students at Morningside Elementary participate in weekly art instruction.
