Students will experience working with a variety of materials and also learn specific techniques which will enhance their artistic skills. All grade levels will learn about the elements of art and principles of design and follow the GISD comprehensive curriculum which is aligned with the Fine Arts Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.

 Students learn to sing and to read at sight, both rhythms and intervals. Older students learn to to play instruments, study composers and learn to sing as a choir. Younger grades learn singing games and movement. All students perform throughout the year to showcase their talents to family and friends.

We hope our students will take the skills they have learned in Art and Music, and choose to create beauty and harmony throughout their lives.
