The Pownal Elementary School Art Program is designed to facilitate our students' exploration in the arts. Each grade level experiences lessons in painting, drawing, crafts, clay, sculpture, design and art appreciation. The lessons are developmentally appropriate and align with the Common Core Standards . Problem solving and use of imagination is encouraged. Emphasis is placed on visual literacy and visual storytelling.Lessons are integrated with classroom curriculum where appropriate. We use the Davis Curriculum as a guide. Each year each grade visits at least one area art museum such as: Williams College Museum of Art and the Clark Art Institute.
