Expanding Awareness with the Arts


At VSIE we recognize that the expanding awareness of our young artists is the source of their growing ability to enjoy and create art. Their daily meditation results in an enhanced quality of creation and appreciation. All students have opportunities to experience different art forms. Each school year the degree of emphasis on dance, drama, music or visual arts varies according to the needs and interests of that particular group.

Colleen Lissamer, our visual arts specialist, is committed to weaving the arts into the curriculum to create a richer and more lasting learning experience for the children. She has the rare ability to teach art techniques in a way that leaves the children free to express their magical creativity.
