EGR Art Mission:
Art provides an environment that nurtures self-expression, development of lifelong skills, and an appreciation for artistic heritage.
We believe that every child and student in our care is talented and capable of growing through an art experience. We further believe that art promotes the development of fine motor skills, creative problem solving, higher order thinking, and sensitivity to the ideas of others. Art provides tools for interpreting life experiences and helps develop a child's identity and sense of self-worth. Our focus for art education will always remain on process, rather than product
My name is Peri Padmos den Dulk. I am an artist, teacher, wife, and mother. I graduated from Calvin College with a degree in art education and earned a Masters degree from UW Madison. I am passionate about teaching young children to develop the creative tools they need to navigate our visual world. Our art room is an exciting, expressive, and messy place. I hope your child shares with you some of the wonderful projects we have created.
