Welcome to The Tucson Country Day School Art Department!
Together Mrs. Kala Phelps and Jean Paradis and teach 2nd-8th graders visual art. We create our own curriculum, design, collect projects and work closely with our students to provide a rich art experience encompassing a wide variety of media.
Our Top Three Priorities –
Planning: We design projects that incorporate relevant social/historical context and a wide variety of media.
Engaging: Students are guided and motivated to create original, meaningful artworks that promote lifelong joy in art creation and appreciation.
Teaching: Students are shown how to enlarge and grow their own inventiveness and skills.
