The kindergarten art curriculum is designed around the understanding that kindergarten students are developing artists. Lessons are open ended, offering guided exploration to promote discovery and imagination.  Creativity is fostered to encourage personal expression. Students begin to learn that their artwork can communicate an intended meaning, expressing a variety of ideas, subjects, or emotions.  Lessons are designed to stimulate reflective thinking and encourage sharing and discussion about artwork. Students learn that their artwork has value and meaning. They learn to value the artwork of others and begin to understand it'smeaning as well.
To encourage skill development, students are introduced to and experiment with a variety of processes, techniques, and media.  This introduction to a variety of processes, techniques, and media will provide a foundation for future lessons and promote confidence in communicating visually through their artwork.  
Finally, the South Kingstown Kindergarten Art Curriculum is a dynamic and integrated part of the whole school environment, promoting connections to the classroom through shared lessons and displaying student artwork.  The creativeand analytical nature of art provides strength to the education of the whole child.
