Studio Arts

Art Studio

Studio Arts is our comprehensive art program with a specialized creative arts curriculum designed by our resident Studio Teacher or Aterlierista, Elysia. Elysia earned her M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction for Early Childhood Education from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and B.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts and Art History from the Kansas City Art Institute.

SPCC has the unique resource of an artist’s studio or atelier,  dedicated solely to the purposes of the art program. Elysia works with all of the classrooms in our school, including infants. Elysia exposes the children to a multiplicity of art mediums and forms. She also integrates art history, literacy, and cultural competency into the arts curriculum.

Having a studio teacher/atelierista helps our school to realize our vision of engaging in meaningful art explorations as a means to fostering an enriching, supportive environment, which nurtures a child’s natural curiosity of the world.
