Art is a fun, interactive element of the Tuttle School education. Students work together and independently to learn about art elements, principles, cultures, artists and art history. Activities include strategies that help students to develop individuality in their artwork along with enhancing multi-sensory skills through fine-motor and tactile activities. Students feel tremendous pride at creating their artwork which enhances self-esteem and self-expression.
In the Tuttle School, our artists use a variety of techniques and mediums to keep learning fun. On any given day, art teachers employ painting (watercolor, tempera, acrylic), drawing (using crayons, markers, colored pencils, chalk, oil pastels), and various types of clay. There’s never a dull day in art!
