Art classes meet four or five periods per week. The art classes are taught from an approach that relies heavily on studio and material experience. There are, however, elements of discipline-based art education (DBAE). DBAE is centered on a systematic sequential teaching method that emphasizes four areas of the arts: art production, art criticism, art history, and aesthetics. This approach to art education provides a wide range of learning techniques that can act as a conceptual bridge to other subjects. Skills as well as creativity are developed during this process.
Beginning in 2012, Stevenson has had an annual student art exhibition at the Gallery MC on 52nd Street. This opportunity for public affirmation of students’ efforts allows them to build pride and confidence in their own abilities and provide a forum for positive and reinforcing interactions between parents and their children.
