ABOUT KAISER, ART TEACHER

Kaiser (she/her) is new to the Earth School community this year, and so excited to be here! She loves to do ceramics, paint, and draw, but her real passion is making art with young people.


VISION


At the Earth School, we trust that the child is the artist. In the earlier years, young artists learn through play and exploration. They interact with as many materials as possible and practice using line, shape, pattern, and color. In older grades, students will learn more advanced techniques, and will also have more choice in the concepts and materials they will focus on as artists.

Art All Around

Tapping into children’s expressive capabilities also enhances their math, literacy and social skills, so the arts are integrated into virtually all aspects of the Earth School program.

All students spend at least two sessions each week in the Art Studio, drawing and painting, making prints, collages and sculptures, and compiling portfolios of their work.
