Gifted and Talented Art Program

The Gifted and Talented Art Program at CMS School is a before-school morning program which allows artistically talented 4th & 5th grade students the opportunity to participate in additional art instruction once a week.  During this time, the focus is upon enhancing each child's artistic abilities, nurturing and developing their creativity and engaging in a variety of artistic mediums.  Students work in both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional applications.  Opportunities are given to explore famous artists and art history, and the elements and principles of art and design. 

The program is designed for students in 4th & 5th grade who exhibit artistic, creative talent with a consistently high degree of self-motivation.  Students are nominated by their parents/guardians, art teacher or other teachers.  Nominees are given a drawing test on a determined testing date.  The process is extremely competitive and a panel of art educators evaluate the tests on a grade-level basis.  Parents/Guardians are notified of their child's test results.  

The Gifted & Talented Art Program provides unique opportunities for artistic expression and the development of creative and critical thinking.  The goal of the program is to provide a variety of interesting and sequential developmental experiences leading to advanced artwork at the next level.
