Art - Mr Palmiscno

Welcome to Mr. P's ARTRoom...

 

Why do we need ART???

The arts allow children to express themselves creatively.
The arts teach children to be more tolerant and open.
The arts promote individuality, bolster self-confidence,
and improve overall academic performance.
The arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution,
aids in developing critical and abstract thinking,
addresses different learning styles and needs,
teaches persistence and exploration,
and creates reflective thinkers
who are asked to step back, analyze and judge.

"The arts, more than any other subject, help students
to understand themselves and others,
whether they lived in the past or are living in the present."
