It was not that long ago that arts education in schools was thought to be a luxury, and arts classes were cut from the curriculum to make room for more time to prepare for standardized tests. Currently, there is more and more information available that shows how crucial arts integration is to creating well-rounded, well-prepared learners and leaders.
At Our Lady of Guadalupe School, the arts (visual arts, drama, music, movement) have always been an integrated part of our curriculum as they contribute to developing innovation, creativity, problem solving and “outside the box” thinking. From Preschool all the way through 8th Grade, at OLG we weave the arts into our core classroom curriculum as well as teach specific artistic skills and abilities. Thus, our students work with art in their homeroom, in family groups, as well with our art specialist.
