The Lakehurst Elementary School art department is discipline-based art education. It combines studio skills, critical thinking, aesthetics, and art history. Students will work in a wide range of mediums: drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, graphic design, collage, and film. We cover art from its origins, to contemporary works and artists of today. The elements of art and the principles of design are instilled throughout the various projects. Creativity and imagination are highly stressed!! The eighth and seventh graders are now constructing cardboard sculptures. The sixth and fourth graders are assembling mobiles.The fifth grade will be starting a collage lesson with the first grade. The second graders and kindergarten are creating paper assemblages modeled after the work of Henri Matisse.
