Pinnacle Peak Prep Art Masterpiece Program


The Art Masterpiece program is designed to introduce significant works of art to children and build an appreciation for fine art while enhancing their lessons in Social Studies, Science, Geography and other subjects.

This program is administered and presented by parent volunteers, in cooperation with teachers. As with the rest of the school’s curriculum, we follow the Core Knowledge program.

The Art Masterpiece program complements and enhances what the students are learning in class. Lessons plans are provided and are coordinated with the Core Knowledge curriculum. Lessons typically last 45-60 minutes and include an art activity. The program helps increase the students' awareness and understanding of art and introduces principles of art and various techniques in an engaging format.
