Welcome to Samantha Smith Elementary School’s Explore Art Program!

Explore Art
is a volunteer – based art program provided by the Samantha Smith PTSA to support our continued effort in encouraging students to develop their own creativity and divergent thinking.  The main focus of Explore Art is to introduce a variety of art concepts, mediums, and artists while providing an opportunity to learn through exploration. Our goal is to encourage students to discover their own interests and skills, while emphasizing that the process of learning art is valued over the end product.
