The Keister Art Studio

Welcome to the Keister Art Studio

New art will be displayed in our "Art Gallery"on the panels outside the Keister Library as soon as possible.  Please come by and take a look at our children’s creativity!

 Art teaches many valuable skills like:

1. Creativity – Being able to think on your feet, approach tasks from different perspectives and think ‘outside of the box’ are valuable skills. 

2. Confidence –  Children become proud of what they accomplish and their hard work.  Confidence helps individuals succeed in all areas of life.  

3. Problem Solving –  Without even realizing it, kids that participate in the arts are consistently being challenged to solve problems, which develops children’s skills in reasoning and understanding. 

4. Focus –  Recent research has shown that participation in the arts improves children’s abilities to concentrate and focus in other aspects of their lives.


Art Needs...

The sculpture bins are stocked with small odds and ends that the children like to put together to create things from their imagination.  If you would like to help keep our sculpture bin stocked, please save some of your recyclables for us!  We would love to have...

very small boxes (like the size of a band-aid, cards, or tea)
corks
spools
plastic lids
small containers
buttons
springs
nuts
bolts
anything small that looks interesting!

Note about ceramics projects!!!

For ceramic projects that will be coming home:  The glazes are food safe only if they cover the entire surface inside the pots.  Even if they have covered the inside well with glaze, I have told the kids to stick to dry snacks like crackers or pretzels or to use their pot for something inedible.  


**As with all material found on the Internet, teachers and parents should be very careful in allowing students to explore these sites unless direct supervision is provided.  Keister Elementary is not responsible for the content of various links beyond the initial levels of each site.
