Our art program at DE strives to build on every child's ability and interests in the arts. By providing many different materials and techniques each student can experience hands on learning.
Many of our projects connect to the PYP program and are Inquiry based so students have the opportunity to research and apply art alongside Science, Math, personal History and global cultures.
"Art is not what you see but what you make others see."
