Art Education Program
Did you know that the art program at Snoqualmie Elementary is primarily funded by the PTSA? Thank you to all the families who participate in our fundraising efforts and allow students to receive 5 art lessons a year!
Museo Art Academy, in partnership with the SES PTSA, will work in tandem to bring visual arts education to the young artists at Snoqualmie Elementary.
Students are encouraged to express their own unique styles as they explore a variety of art mediums and learn about historical art movements. Each project focuses heavily on the CREATIVE PROCESS with emphasis on developing skills and understanding applicable art elements and design principles while working toward a specific objective.
Each grade level will receive 5 sessions of art covering 5 art mediums: drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber arts and metal working.
Due to remote learning, this program will not be operating for the 2020-2021 school year
Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life.
Students in pre-K through grade 12 create original works of art in response to a theme. The theme for the 2020-2021 program year is I Matter Because… Students submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
While the primary focus of Reflections is a celebration of creativity through positive recognition, finalists from local PTAs will move on to their council PTA (if applicable), then finalists from councils will move on to the state round. Washington State PTA finalists who receive an “Outstanding Interpretation” award will advance to the National PTA round. National PTA Reflections awards can be found here.
Young artists get involved by contacting their local PTA leaders. The deadline for turning in artwork to your local PTA will typically be in late autumn.
2020-2021 student entry packets are available below. 2019-2020 student finalists and a sampling of their work is located on the Student Showcase page.
