Art - 2

OVERVIEW

The Elementary Visual Art suite encourages students to feel confident in their own creativity and expression while providing the foundational skills to be successful in a studio environment. Using the Elements of Art and Principles of Design as the framework, students will feel confident in creating their own style of art. Students will explore and safely use a variety of materials during the creative process. The courses explicitly teach art techniques through modeling and connecting students to master artists. During the creative process, students will apply art vocabulary and procedures, as well as time-management and collaborative skills. They will use their observational skills, prior knowledge, and art critique skills to reflect on and interpret works of art. Throughout each multifaceted¬†lesson, the students will make connections to art and various cultures around the world. These courses offer rich text to support art history instruction, including information on artists and art movements over time. The visual art suite integrates standards from all the core subject areas, including math, science, health, and language arts. This suite will develop students’ fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, creativity, and appreciation for global communities.
