The goal of Loma’s Arts Attack program is to teach every child how to express himself/herself through art.
This demands that the students learn to see and experience the world in a different way. The language of art, like the language of words, requires the learning of skills and concepts that will allow the free flow of expression.
The goals of Arts Attack are to teach the elements and principles of art and drawing in a developmental and sequential way, as well as to study the art of other artists, cultures and historical periods. In all areas of study, the emphasis is on motivation and self-expression.
Recognizing that children learn what they are excited about, the subjects of the Arts Attack lessons have been selected through years of working with students in the classroom. The focus of the hands-on lessons is to utilize the process of visualizing, synthesizing and expressing through a wide variety of media.
Loma’s Arts Attack program is conducted primarily by parent volunteers working closely with classroom teachers throughout the school year. The culmination of the year’s program is the Annual Art Show, held in conjunction with the Open House, where students select one of their artworks to share with the Loma community.
