Elementary Art Program Overview
The elementary art program of Fairfax County Public Schools is exploratory and conceptual in nature. Children explore a variety of thinking processes, art forms, materials, techniques, and sources of inspiration to solve art, making challenges and meaning of their world. The elementary art program is designed with a sustained focus on "A Sense of Place" providing students opportunities to question, explore, and document their perception of their place in the world. "A Sense of Place" is an enduring idea that validates the experiences of young artists, helps them understand what it means to be a human, and challenges them to be more empathetic to the people, cultures, and environments they encounter. At each grade level, "A Sense of Place" is explored through a different, developmentally appropriate theme.
Annual Pyramid Art Show
You are all invited to our annual “Pyramid Art Show” which will exhibit student artwork from all grade levels that feed into Fairfax High School (K-12). The Pyramid Art Show will take place at Fairfax High on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. There will be: one man shows, demonstrations, a craft table, a food truck, a scavenger hunt and certificates for those artists that have their artwork featured in the show. Come see what our students can do! Look for a personal invitation, sometime near the end of March, if your child has their own artwork featured.
