Fremont Public Schools K-4 Select Artwork
What happens when the Fremont Public Schools Art Specialists enter the kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms in our elementary schools?
Early exposure to the fine arts (including visual arts and performing arts programs) promotes healthy activity in the brain.
In the elementary years, children begin to develop important aspects of self-concept. At this age, they begin to make social comparisons, these comparisons help them to understand who they are and their place in the world.
Through art courses students are encouraged to communicate their thoughts and ideas in a way that is clear and representative of their personal ideals and beliefs. Participating in Art activities helps students to gain the tools necessary for understanding human experience, develops tolerance and respect for others’ ways of working and thinking, and the refines of creative problem-solving skills. The kids learn about artists, the Elements of Art(space, line, shape, form, color, value and texture); they learn about different media and techniques. They are able to express themselves in ways no other school subject allows. Fremont Public Schools Art Specialists Julie Bristol, Jesse Kiefer and Jenny Trapp King enter the classrooms, inspiring wonderful works of art. This select show is representative of work created daily
in the elementary schools of FPS. Stop by to view the young artists’ work – there is nothing else quite as insightful, and full of the personality of the children.
