About the Art Program

Visual art instruction is essential to students' education. Experiencing and creating works of art benefit students' personal, intellectual, and social development. Art instruction enhances students' skills in decision-making, problem-solving, communication, and self-discipline.

          Creating art is a special experience for our students at Abney Elementary. They come eagerly to the art room to create drawings, paintings, and sculpture. They learn about various artists throughout history, art styles, and techniques. They are very proud of their artworks and love to show them off.

Abney Elementary School  is very supportive of the arts. I am very proud and happy to be a part of our program, showing and promoting our students' creativity.
