 I have been working with Jordahl's amazing art students since 2004 and enjoyed every minute of it! 

The art room is a place for active hand's on learning by which children express themselves and better understand the world around them.  We work with a variety of mediums and processes to develop a wide array of skills that build confidence in the creative process.

At Jordahl Elementary, art education curriculum is based on the Colorado Art Education standards.  Primarily, instruction is  project-based and embedded within grade level unit plans designed with cross-curricular connections to students homeroom classroom experience.
