The Arts in Pre-K
Pre-k students begin to grow artistically as they develop a fundamental visual arts “alphabet” – terms such as primary/secondary colors, line, shape and form. Art at the pre-k level is integrated into the program and thematically enriches current units of study. Students are guided to explore and create through the use of a variety of media, materials and art experiences.
Pre-k music includes pitch exploration, listening, playing instruments and various movement activities. Finding the beat is emphasized, as is learning to differentiate between one’s speaking and singing voice. Students use a variety of materials, including rhythm band instruments, scarves, hula hoops, puppets and beanbags.
