• The art program at Charles Kelly Elementary is packed with educational excitement! All lessons are centered on Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE). The goal of disciplined based art education is to develop students' abilities to understand and appreciate art. This involves knowledge of the theories and contexts of art and abilities to respond to as well as to create art. In the art classroom, students also explore a variety of cultures and integrate such subjects as math, science, social studies, and reading. The art classroom is a safe and open environment for all students to create!
