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 for all students in every grade from TK through 8th.
In addition to providing the funds for all of our art teachers’ salaries and benefits, Kiddo! provides funding for all art supplies, materials and equipment.
For students who choose art as an elective in Middle School, instruction increases to four days a week.
Check out this virtual art gallery of student work during the 2020-21 school year.
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.
