Students explore different types of technology aimed at preparing them for 21st century. With the guidance of expert teachers, they explore the use of Ipads, desktops, digital cameras, early robotics, listening centers, and interactive boards. Integrating other subject matters in a technological way gets the students engaged and motivated.
Skills such as shapes, colors, numbers or beginning sounds are reinforced in the visual arts lessons. Children develop their artistic talents through painting, drawing, modeling, and sculpting. They also learn art appreciation as a new artist is introduced each month.
