Art education at Radnor Elementary is designed to:
The Radnor Elementary visual arts curriculum includes inventive art lessons based on the elements of art (line, shape, color, and texture, and is inspired by the works of famous artists and the arts and crafts of artisans from many cultures. Art appreciation is an integral part of our lessons. Our lessons include drawing, painting, printmaking and creating three-dimensional works. Students also work with fibers, clay and collage materials. We adapt our lessons to the developmental level of each grade, beginning with basic skills and concepts in the early years and graduating to more sophisticated and challenging lessons and concepts in the intermediate grades.
- develop your child's creative skills

Your involvement is important to the success of our program. I hope you will encourage your child's artistic endeavors by providing art materials at home, displaying your child's work and taking your young artist to museums and galleries.610-788-9300 ext. 2401
