In the art studio at JVS

Art classes at Jamaica Village School are designed to provide students with an opportunity to think and work like an artist. Students create art, collaborate with others, reflect on their work and prepare their work for display.

A wide variety of materials and techniques are explored and students are encouraged to take their own experiences and use them in their artwork. In addition, students are introduced to art history and art from different cultures in order to deepen their understanding of what art is and why it is important.
