Welcome to Art at Summit Academy!

Hello Parents and Students!
 
Summit Academy provides students with differentiated instruction through the visual arts thanks to the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. We apply art elements and principles to interdisciplinary art projects. Students Experiment, Express and Explore their education through art.
 
Stay updated on weekly art lessons and projects by viewing the "Elementary Art Posts" page. See your students' artwork by clicking on the "Photo Album". Send me an email if you would like to contribute or volunteer in the Art Studio.
 
Happy Art-Making!
 
Mrs. Ellsworth
