Westboro Academy prides itself on making art meaningful, enjoyable and accessible to all students. We offer a hands on learning process that nurtures creativity and self-expression. Our visual arts program is designed to inspire critical thinking, creative problem solving skills, as well as using art to enhance learning in other disciplines.

In kindergarten, the students integrate art projects into their thematic learning within their homeroom environment. Art at this level encourages self-expression and creativity as well as enhances fine motor skills and coordination.

In grades 1-5 the imaginative process is encouraged by providing activities with no “right” or “wrong” design. However, the lessons and projects are chosen with specific principles and objectives in mind. Students start with an idea and are then introduced to new techniques through a multi-media approach. This program is designed to help foster an appreciation for the arts.

In grades 6-8, students use traditional & contemporary tools, materials and media to express feelings, think like artists and value the creative process and the art form.
