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 weekly specialized art instruction.
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 four art classes per week for the entire year.
Kiddo! also provides funding for art supplies and equipment for all K-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.
