In the Visual Arts program, students learn to express themselves through drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, crafts, and photography. In addition, students consider art in terms of aesthetics, art history, and art criticism.

Kiddo! provides funding for one hour per week of specialized small group art instruction for each TK-5 classroom for the entire school year.

In Kindergarten, 4th grade, and 5th grade, your child will attend a Kiddo! funded art class every other week with half of his or her class, allowing the art teachers, as well as the classroom teachers, to work with small groups of students.

Students in grades 1-3 receive small-group sessions (with about half of the class) and the remainder with the entire class.

In Middle School students choose a Kiddo!-funded elective in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  About half of Middle School students elect to attend the Kiddo!-funded art elective.  Students that opt for the art elective attend two art classes per week for the entire year.

Kiddo! also provides funding for art supplies and equipment for all TK-8 art classes.

Note: The Mill Valley School District manages the academic and administrative business for each school and subject — for both District- and Kiddo!-funded teachers and programs — including curriculum development, staffing, teacher professional development, class registration, grading, etc.
