ART WITH MR. PRESTONHello Artists!We are going to have a great year in art class! Preston Elementary students get to attend art class once a week for 45 minutes in our amazing Preston art lab. We have a large studio full of wonderful art supplies and a professional clay kiln to fire our sculptures. This year we've added two new pottery wheels!I believe that all of my students are talented artists, and I am continually amazed by their creativity. Creativity is a powerful tool in any situation, and art class is a great place to strengthen our creative minds. The art lab is a safe environment for our students to creatively express themselves and try new things. We focus on learning the elements of art, the principles of design, and having fun!Please browse the other pages on this website to learn more about art and Mr. Preston.Thanks!!ELEMENTARY ART MISSION STATEMENT:
The mission of the AISD Elementary Visual Arts program is to develop an appreciation of visual art, strengthen creative problem-solving skills, nurture student imagination, and teach concepts important for self-expression. The student will achieve these goals through discovery and exploration of the elements of art and the principles of design in artworks and in the surrounding environment, thus developing essential knowledge and skills that empower the student now and in the future.
