Art

St. Timothy’s offers a wonderful art program for students in the first through fifth grades. The children attend art class every other week. Our art program tries to instill in the students a joy and appreciation of participating in a variety of art activities. Drawing, painting, collage, printing, origami, and animation are a few of the art activities in which the students participate. An appreciation of art history and illustrators are also covered.

In addition, St. Timothy’s has adopted the Art Docent program which is used in the California public schools. Parent volunteers come into JK through fifth grade classrooms six times throughout the year for an hour to an hour and a half. The presentations consist of a discussion with sample paintings in a wide variety of styles which are appropriate for each age, followed by a hands on project. These art projects are displayed in a special show at the end of the year
