Our Art community is alive and well here at Westlawn, with students having art one day a week! From drawing to painting, clay to sculpture work, textiles and more, our artists really shine! Each year the curriculum allows each child to experience a large variety of mediums as well as learn about a diverse array of artists! Each year has a theme, starting with self in kindergarten, moving to family (1st), community (2nd), culture (3rd), time (4th), global awareness (5th), and ultimately bringing everything together with identity in 6th grade. As they grow in their art learning they will get to dig into the many principles of art and design as well as practice good artistic habits.
We also share our art with the community around us! We collaborate with other schools in FCPS to create artwork for the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra, have art shown in FCPS arts shows around the area, as well as having an art night celebration where the whole family can enjoy art making together. We love to see you in art!
