The Hillside School art curriculum emphasizes each child’s unique set of strengths and talents to help him/her improve achievement in all areas of education. Hillside’s integrative approach to learning uses art to enhance academic studies and create the best learning experience for each student.

Within our art program, students will have the opportunity to explore 2D and 3D mediums as well as exposure to Art History and Contemporary art and artists. By incorporating topics from each grade’s core studies when appropriate, students learn to make connections between art and other subjects. This encourages students to develop positive self-worth and a break from the pressures associated with learning.


Art is about creating and allowing our individual selves to reflect in our masterpieces.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
