New Los Angeles Charter School provides a dynamic and integrated arts experience for every child during their years at New LA.
6th Grade – Visual Arts
Through a variety of mediums – paint, collage, clay, papier mache – children are given the opportunity to express themselves in new and creative ways in an ever more visual world. The work the children create will be put on display at a special culmination event marking the end of the school year and displayed throughout the school.
