Art@SMOS was formed by a school parent who saw the need for a formal art program at St. Margaret of Scotland. Over the years the program has evolved, including the addition of an art teacher for grades 1 – 8.
Kindergarten Art is taught twice per month by parent volunteers in the classroom. There is a curriculum that teaches basic techniques like watercolor painting, line drawing, perspective, and more. The parents teach a short lesson about the subject matter or artist and then work with the children to complete their artwork. The art is then mounted and hung in the hallways for all to enjoy.
Additionally, parents are encouraged to help out Ms. Bodell in the art classroom. She frequently sends requests when she needs an extra set of hands or two.
