A Private Preschool & Elementary School Art Program

Does your child show interest in the arts and need an outlet and place of learning to foster their creative development? At Yorkshire Academy in Houston, TX, native residents and students originating from around the world can access our art school for kids. Our academy’s fine arts program lets students explore and experience the art world and artists while emphasizing art production, learning about art’s historical and cultural contexts, and responding to works of art critically and aesthetically. We have a deep understanding of early childhood education and a profound appreciation for the fine arts. By combining our two prominent passions, we can expose your child to centuries of notable creative expression, including contemporary pieces, artists, and concepts. Students also get to develop their own skills and create expressive works reflecting their perspective on art and the world they experience during these classes. Enrolling your child in our art school is a perfect way to nurture their artistic side in a safe, friendly environment with fellow students.

About Our Immersive Art School for Kids in Houston, TX

For decades, Yorkshire Academy has been an exceptional private school for preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school students. Our curriculum is on par with the British school system, making it highly beneficial to local students and international families in need of a suitable education institute. Children returning to their countries of origin can seamlessly integrate back into their school system because of our impressive educational standards. These standards of excellence translate to our art school for kids. Teaching fine arts is an essential part of a well-rounded educational experience, aiding students in their academic and personal development. We take the world of art and make it comprehensible to early minds so that they can learn to express their artistic concepts and abilities.

Curriculum for Pre-K & Lower Elementary School Students

In our pre-K and private elementary school art programs, we emphasize the intentions of creating art: communicating ideas. These classes concentrate on past and present artists and where they got their images to draw and paint. Yorkshire Academy encourages students to use their memory, observation, and imagination techniques to create their own artwork. We also introduce students to color theory, such as primary and secondary colors, and elements of art like texture, line, and shape in the early stages of the program. Your child also learns about famous artists throughout history, including Georgia O’Keeffe and Leonardo Da Vinci. These lessons build a foundation for students to continue their artistic education and tap into their own voices as artists.

Artistic Learning for Upper Elementary School Students

At Yorkshire Academy, upper elementary school students continue their strong learning relationship between art production and art history. We proceed with their education by pairing the two previous areas with exploring dissimilarity between landscape, portrait, and still life art. Students also get an introduction to other ways of making art, including sculpture using modeling clay and linoleum and wood cut techniques of printmaking. All art students keep a portfolio of their created works throughout the school year, while fifth-grade students keep a sketchbook or journal. Our art program also works closely with our music program, designing sets for school musicals and helping make the school more beautiful by decorating walls with their personal masterpieces.

Start Your Child’s Art Education at Yorkshire Academy

There is no way to avoid the fact art class is fun and messy, and that’s the way it should be. It wouldn’t be fun if students had to keep the art room spotless while quietly working without expressing delight with their newly made sculptures or a recently discovered color. The joy of art is an excellent way to encourage your child’s inventive learning, creative expression, and social interaction. Yorkshire Academy welcomes students to participate in our private elementary and preschool art school programs. Contact us today to learn more about our art school for kids and start your child’s creative education.
