North Merrick's Art Department
Art plays a vital role in the life of a child by developing a form of creative expression, which results in a feeling of accomplishment and enhances self-worth. It also promotes the development of good taste. The child is guided to grow in this way by relating art to many subjects and by providing opportunities to work with such media as paint, crayons, clay, and paper. Art experiences not only enrich the school curriculum but promote skills and art appreciation as part of everyday living.
