Learn about our Choice Based Art Room at Sherlock and take a look at some creative artists in action!
Welcome to ART at Sherlock! Artists at Sherlock learn to create art in a Choice Based Art Room. Through a curriculum that aligns with the standards, artists learn to plan their ideas, create their art, and reflect & assess their work. We explore various media at 6 art centers like the Drawing Center, Painting Center, and Collage Center. While the teacher demonstrates materials, tools and techniques, students practice their fine motor skills, creativity and self expression at the center of their choice. As the photographer Ansel Adams said, "No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit."
