Art

The art program at Avery's Creek Elementary is aligned with both the National Standards for Art Education and the NC Visual Arts curriculum. all levels are taught through Discipline Based Art Education including these four major components: Art History, Art Production, Aesthetics, Art Criticism.

Our goal with our art program is to help students develop intuition, sensitivity, reasoning skills, imagination and dexterity. Art classes at Avery's Creek Elementary help students perceive and think in new ways and learn problem recognition and problem solving skills. Communicating effectively, learning to respect others opinions and art, making creative decisions for new situations, and team work with collaboration of ideas are all part of the experience in our art classes.

Each spring we participate in the art show at Asheville Mall.

Art instruction is imperative for building bridges between verbal and nonverbal skills, and logical and emotional development. Please feel free to call or come by and visit. We would love to have parent volunteers. We could also use additional art supplies. The front office has a list of our materials.
