Mrs. Mitchell

We believe that the Fine Arts contribute to the harmonious development of the physical, mental and spiritual powers.  Therefore, art is a part of our curriculum at each grade level.

Research shows that a study of fine Arts has both academic and non-academic benefits.  Noted brain researcher, Eric Jensen says it well.  "The arts enhance the process of learning."  He states that they promote, "self-discipline and motivation . . . aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, social harmony, creativity, imporved emotional expression, and appreciation of diversity."

Cypress students in grades 1-8 have the opportunity to have formal art instruction from Mrs. Mitchell for an hour every Friday.
