Elementary Art Stars is a unique program devoted to enriching the lives of children through exposure to the visual arts. As the leading provider of formal art education in the CNUSD, we are please to offer a full service experience including grade level appropriate art instruction and assemblies featuring a master artist or cultural style. Each classroom based directed art lesson utilizes a variety of art elements, techniques and specialized supplies that allow students to succeed in creating art in a new and exciting way.
California content standards for visual arts are woven throughout the program at all grade levels. We provide the opportunity for schools to participate in the selection of featured artists or cultures. Our program is not cookie-cutter written and therefore allows schools to layer our curriculum with theirs.
Patrice Dolphin and her staff bring wealth of enthusiasm and experience to the program.These highly trained instructors include graphic artists, credentialed teachers, and art history majors, all of which are passionate about teaching art. We strive to build the self esteem and confidence of students through encouragement and praise.
