ART CLASS!
with Ms. Farrow Jones
See links below of what your child is learning in Art.
Learning Art at ICS is a process of imagining, discovering and taking risks. Students learn that "mistakes" are a process of learning a skill. See the Ministry of Education's outline of the The Creative Process (pg 20) which can teach students a premise of learning that benefits all subject areas.
