Curious About the Art Curriculum?

The visual arts are a priority for Mill Valley schools, where students get specialized art instruction in TK-5, plus art as an elective for almost half of students in grades 6-8. This year, in addition to funding art teacher salaries and materials, Kiddo! is helping fund Art Teacher Professional Development.

Team meetings are held at the District level, using the California Visual Arts Standards and Common Core State Standards. As stated on the District’s new Art Department page, “The Mill Valley School District is able to provide a robust Art Curriculum where students learn to express personal ideas and feelings using their imagination, or observation. Students learn to value originality, artistic freedom, and the art process… Through the making of their own art, students learn to invent, experiment, take risks, make mistakes, and learn from each other.”
