Welcome to Poinsettia Elementary Visual Arts Program. At POI we believe that instruction in the arts promotes personal expression and essential skills such as problem solving. - Tara Clark, Visual Arts Teacher

"The arts are a dynamic presence in our daily lives, enabling us to express our creativity while challenging our intellect. Through the arts, children have a unique means of expression that captures their passions and emotions and allows them to explore ideas, subject matter, and culture in delightfully different ways. Achievement in the arts cultivates essential skills, such as problem solving, creative thinking, effective planning, time management, teamwork, effective communication, and an understanding of technology."  - CA Visual Performing Arts Content Standards

*Remember to wear "ART CLOTHES" on your ART day!

It's a good idea to have an old shirt to put over your clothes when creating art.  Ask your teacher if it would be okay to leave it in the classroom so it is readily available.  Old shoes are perfect to wear as well.  If we are painting and your child is wearing new shoes, s/he will be asked to remove them for the art lesson.
