    Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life. 
     -Pablo Picasso
     

    The goal of the art program at McNair Elementary is to prepare children to understand how art has shaped culture throughout history and to spur their exploration of art and society today. The program focuses on discipline-based art education and core-curriculum as the basis for exploration through various mediums appropriate to each child's learning level. Art history, criticism, aesthetics, and art production are incorporated into each lesson along with the integration of other subjects like math, science, language arts and social studies to reinforce and broaden students' knowledge and skills. The program aims to help students see the relationship of these subjects to understand art and its value to our society.
