About Our Program

The Franklin Regional visual arts program provides students with an opportunity for self expression as they explore a variety of media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and fiber arts.  Students practice critical thinking, creative thinking and problem solving in hands-on age appropriate activities and experiences.
 
Visual Arts is a 45 minute weekly special class offered to all Franklin Regional full day kindergarten through fifth grade students. Students learn basic art concepts and techniques using a variety of art media. 

Student artwork is on display in the first floor hallway, basement and library throughout the school year.   Artwork is sent home  as completed in order that students may also celebrate and share their artwork at home.

"The future of our nation depends on the ability to create and to be creative. During the coming decades our most important national resources will be human resources. If our nation is to continue to meet the challenges of the future, today's schools need to develop creative leaders."
