Arts Education is an integral part of the core curriculum and offers powerful tools for expression – tools for making connections between intellect and emotion, tools for bringing meaning and beauty into our lives, and tools for solving problems and communicating ideas.

Ms. Alison Massidda
My love of art started at a very young age. I was constantly working with clay, drawing, painting, taking photographs and sewing. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a BFA in Fine and Applied Art. It is such a joy to get to share art with children! I am so excited to get to be a part of the Claremont Family!
