At Bon Air Elementary art plays an important role in our school culture and is integrated within classroom expeditions. All students are exposed to the major arts and each student has opportunities to work in a variety of media. The arts help students learn about and appreciate other cultures and diverse artistic styles. Guiding students to make aesthetic decisions gives them the ability to view their own work with a critical eye and strive for high standards.
Each year we have artwork on display at various locations in the community, our website and at the Fine Arts Festival in the spring. Artistic leaders are recognized and slideshows of artwork are shared at our town meetings. As a leadership school, many of our art projects touch on aspects of leadership.
