Art Education

Ocean Knoll’s Art Program is funded by our PTA and is run entirely by our community of parents, family members and volunteers. Students in grades K-6 are introduced to the basic elements of art (color, value, line, shape, form, texture and space), using pre-designed standards-based art lessons in the classroom. Our program is centered largely on two elementary school programs, Arts Attack and Deep Space Sparkle, but new projects and ideas are always encouraged and welcomed.

Our art program is created to provide students with an opportunity to explore many art techniques in order to develop their individuality, creativity and appreciation of art.

Student art is highlighted each month in the Ocean Knoll front office, and in our end-of-the year Art Show, which will be held in conjunction with Open House in Spring of 2018. We are looking forward to another year of exciting and engaging art projects created by our own talented Ocean Knoll Elementary students! Please contact co-chairs, Beth Thomas-Granger (bthomas@scripps.edu) or Kristine Persidok (kpersidok@dmusd.org) for more information, or if you are interested in helping out in the classroom. No previous art background necessary!
