Spectra Art is a classroom program that combines art history and appreciation with hands-on art activities. Students work in a variety of media such as charcoal, acrylics, watercolor, and pen and ink, depending upon the age level. A Spectra-trained art teacher provides this instruction weekly in all classrooms. Ceramics are also offered in addition to the Spectra program at Hoover. This program is supported by PiE donations.

Children’s Theater – A Children’s Theater performance is held at each elementary school site in PAUSD in two-year rotations.
