A Day Without Art is Like A Day Without Sunshine

lower school artists with their works

In the Lower School, teaching artist Michele Bernstein guides our youngest students through the process of acquiring new skills and abilities in a variety of visual media. Students are encouraged to express themselves creatively while they develop competency in representational and abstract art. In the upper grades, teaching artist Lori Arbel guides students to develop personal creative visions. The Studio encourages students to be creative; explore ideas, express feelings, and share observations. Art is a chosen elective where we nurture all skill levels. Most students do not feel they are art prodigies, nor wish to be, yet they still love the process, the fundamental part of art making. The year begins with teacher-directed projects that familiarize students with various mediums, techniques, and subjects. Ongoing constructive critiques help students improve art vocabulary, ideation, and product. After the traditionally structured studio course, students choose the medium that best fits the themes of their choice. This contemporary mixed media approach reflects the modern artist and our current society in an age of informational overload. The studio teaches students how to sort, organize, and focus as educated-innovative consumers, creators and leaders. This learning environment balances the busy student Posnack schedule. Students take risks while working independently on projects in a safe environment like professionals must due to succeed in their fields. Additionally, museum visits, relevant videos, eclectic music, and artist presentations inspire and influence students in new directions. Posnack has been recognized and empowers students through local and national competitions, scholarships, and opportunities. The annual Posnack Art Walk, with the support of our families and fine art department, recognizes each of our art students. Join us, you can be featured in our next Posnack ArtWalk.
