At Berkwood Hedge School, the visual arts are integrated into the curriculum at every grade level. In the classrooms children have ready access to paper and drawing materials. In addition, classes meet in small groups with art teacher Kalen Meyer.
Kalen, a working artist, is passionate about art and strives to instill in every student a love and appreciation of visual art--allowing children the time and space to explore their own artistic expression and nurturing artistic confidence, so every child is able to create art using his or her own individual visual vocabulary. Students of all grade levels explore media such as collage, photography, papier mache, drawing, and watercolor. Ceramic work is an important part of the art program at Berkwood Hedge School. The school has a kiln and students work with clay regularly.
