Students at both McKinley Elementary and Central Intermediate will be taking a general visual arts class that will introduce to new materials and techniques. Students attend class once a week for 40 minutes. Completed art is displayed in the classrooms and throughout our buildings as well. All students also participate in our district's annual Fine Arts Festival held the first week of May.
Our goal for art education is to expand students’ knowledge in the visual arts through lecture, presentation, and application.
Here at OES we follow the Illinois state standards.
In art class we generally do not have homework unless a student has been absent and needs to complete the work, however, most projects cannot go home until completed due to the materials used.
