At Lu Sutton, art is taught through the Arts Attack program at each grade level, and is considered to be part of our curriculum. The focus of the hands-on lessons is to utilize the process of visualizing, synthesizing and expressing, through the wide variety of media. Students use and develop the right hemisphere of their brain while participating in art.
The goals of Arts Attack are to teach the elements and principles of art and drawing in a developmental and sequential way, as well as to study the art of other artists, cultures and historical periods. In all areas of study, the emphasis is on motivation and self-expression.
Lu Sutton’s Arts Attack program is conducted primarily by parent volunteers working closely with classroom teachers throughout the school year. The culmination of the year’s program is the annual Art Show where students select one of their artworks to share with our community.
