Gateway to Art

 Gateway to Art encourages your child’s creative and mental growth through meaningful art experiences!
 
Welcome back to another year of Gateway to Art. For those new to our school, the Gateway to Art program enhances a child’s creative and mental growth through art experiences in a non-judgmental environment. It helps develop a child’s visual perception and awareness by exposing them to different artists and techniques.
 
Currently, there are four schools in the area that participate in GTA. St. Anastasia has participated in GTA since it's inception in 1994.
 
Every month an artist demonstrates an art project to the docents of all the participating schools. The docents then teach the children at their school, including the background and history of the original artist, the medium, and technique. Step by step instructions are given during class, with lots of opportunity for individual creativity.
 
Every year GTA has six projects. Each class will showcase two projects at the school Art Show in May. Rotating exhibits will be located in the school entry, library and principal's office throughout the year.
