Elementary School Art Curriculum
Elementary Art instruction is provided for elementary school students in grades 1 through 6 once each week for 40 minutes. This instruction focuses on fine motor skill development, building an understanding of the artistic elements and principles of design, and the development of perseverence and creativity within self-expression.
Each year, School District U-46 collaborates with Elgin State Bank to host the "Art is Elementary" showcase at the Tyler Creek Plaza branch of the Elgin State Bank. Approximately 15-25 students from each elementary school have their artwork selected for display.
