The preschool curriculum offers guided as well as free, explorational art projects to Alto’s youngest students. Ample of art and craft material are available to children every day and range from crayons, scissors, water paint, clay to hot glue-guns. Elementary school art is integrated into the overall curriculum of elementary school students. Art projects are often directly connected to the current academic unit, for example while 4th grade students explore the basics of economics and product design, they are tasked to produce their own product which later can be sold at a fair, e.g. baking cookies. As part of the art curriculum students create a marketing poster and packaging for their product.
Middle and high school students are offered visual art classes that allow them to explore different media and art techniques. Students are encouraged to explore their own creative site, keeping a sketchbook and try out new ideas. Students often venture beyond the classroom, for example to participate in the local chalk art festival or to local museums. In addition, Alto offers an after school art club for those students who are interested to explore their creative side further.
