PCNS Art Show: In February we begin our yearly Art Study. The children learn about famous artists and create their own works of art in the style of the artists they are learning about. Some of the artists we have studied in the past include Monet, Dale Chihuly, Michelangelo, and Picasso. For the Art Show, all of the artwork that the children create is put up on display and families are invited to attend a special evening exhibition.
Museum of Fine Arts Field Trip: A follow up to our art show. Children are led by a museum tour guide on an artful adventure through the galleries looking at various works of art by the artists they have studied. The kid-friendly adventure ends in the art studio where children create their own piece of art.
