ART: At SAE, we understand the importance of keeping art in the curriculum. While students in art classes learn techniques specific to art, such as how to draw, how to mix paint, or how to center a pot, they're also taught a remarkable array of mental habits not emphasized elsewhere in school. Such skills include visual-spatial abilities, reflection, self-criticism, and the willingness to experiment and learn from mistakes. All are important to numerous careers, but are widely ignored by today's standardized tests. Our Art Teachers are:

Katie Artentina and Kimberly Rizzo - rizzok@fultonschools.org

Music: Every child has the potential for successful, meaningful interactions with music. The SAE music program focuses on the development of this potential, through encounters with a variety of music and opportunities to participate in developmentally appropriate music activities. Our Musical Mission at Sweet Apple is to continue to learn and experience new things about music while discovering how music connects to other school subjects and to the world around us. We will achieve a successful musical class each week by participating in activities, cooperating with others, and enjoying the music that we learn. Our Music Teachers are:
