Art Education is about our visual culture. It helps students build the confidence to use their senses, knowledge and feelings to find meaning in their environment as well as in works of art. These aesthetic experiences improve the quality of their lives. The study of art in basic education enables all students to respond and react to visual aspects of the world.
AMAZING ART DISPLAYS:
Last fall, representative artworks from K-5 Prairie students were featured at our District 203 Administration Center. District 203 K-12 student artworks were displayed at Naperville City Hall earlier this winter. Many Prairie student artworks were showcased in this special annual art display and three Prairie student artworks were displayed at the district administration center in March – Youth Art Month (PSAC). During our annual Open House in January, all K-5 Prairie students had artwork on display for our families to enjoy. We hope you enjoyed a recent art display in the LC at Prairie that highlighted artwork created by two former Prairie student artists who are current Naperville North High School students.
AMAZING ART OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2nd & 3rd GRADE STUDENTS:
Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Wheeler hosted two different session of Impact ART! Club last fall and this spring. Interested students met in the art room on Tuesdays to create art for others. Our artwork is making a positive impact on our school community and beyond! Two of our favorite projects from this year were our Pinwheels for Peace Projects, Buddy Bench video, Veteran’s Day Welcome banner & pinwheels, Prairie Spirit Sticks, Prairie 50th Anniversary photo booth props and colorful glass jar battery candle holders for our Volunteer Staff Luncheon – later given to the Sunrise Center just a mile from our school
THANK YOU, PRAIRIE STUDENT COUNCIL!
We so appreciate your help with coloring the patriotic banner for Veteran’s Day last fall and with packing up donated school supplies this spring!
