Welcome to Art

  • Instructor: Leslie Williamson

    Welcome to the art page for Maugham! This year, our plan and intention is to teach art in person in the art room (yay!). Art lessons will build throughout the year from the basic elements of art and principles of design, and will become more involved each year as the students develop their art skills and concepts. The notion of creativity will be addressed throughout our lessons, always encouraging students to make connections and build on existing ideas.  Lessons will often also link to one or more significant artists as reference and inspiration for the students' work. I hope by the end of each student's time at Maugham they will have acquired a solid foundation in art history and a variety of art making processes, and will know how to apply this knowledge in the service of making expressive artistic statements.
