No education is complete without time and teaching devoted to the arts, to the richness of culture handed down through the ages. The lessons students learn through recognizing and understanding images also helps students in all academic areas including abstract thinking skills. Finally, art education can individualize education for each child because it brings out each person’s individual creativity, which can be used to tackle other subjects. It helps students think outside the box and see problems from a different perspective.

Our program provides opportunities to show where our special students excel, that their learning difficulties do not have to affect all parts of academics. It allows them freedom to express their interests or feelings within a less structured environment. Students’ strengths and weaknesses are considered when providing instruction.

Student artwork is exhibited throughout the classroom as well as Artsonia allows us to display our students’ works so that extended family and friends are able to see their work. It also provides a way for their work to become gifts for others and make a little money to help our art program. The school receives 15% of the profit from any purchases made.

Gallery Night is a special art event that is held at least once each year. Each student has at least one work that is matted for presentation and labeled with the student’s name, class, and media used. This allows the students, parents, and teachers the opportunity to see a cumulative collection of student work.

Community Service

community_serviceCommunity Service is an important part of life at Pace Brantley School. Our students have the opportunity to participate in service activities during the school day (Leadership, Gardening, Recycling, National Honor Society) and as a school community, we support several local organizations that serve children and families in central Florida. We feel it is important that our students are able to expand their service beyond our own school and we encourage all of our students to find a community service opportunity they are passionate about and get involved!!
