Art Program-Elementary

Students in preschool through fifth grade attend elementary art class each week under the direction of art teacher Mrs. Rene Schweter. In art class, emphasis is placed on creativity, working hard, and doing your BEST at all times. Students are taught through art vocabulary, demonstration, guided practice and reflection.

Throughout the course of the year, students explore the elements of line, shape, texture, color and space through the use of graphite, pen, crayons, color pencils, markers, water color, tempera paint, clay and various papers.  Students enjoy creating seasonal holiday projects as well as studying the works and styles of several of the Masters and create works in their styles.  At the end of the school year, selected pieces of each student’s art are chosen for display in the Voice of Creation Art Gallery.

The elementary art program provides each kindergarten through fifth grade student’s art portfolio online, and all artwork remains online until the student graduates or leaves RRCA.  Parents may view the artwork at and any funds generated through the online sales go directly back to the art department.
