Art - 5

In Art Grade 5, students are exposed to many styles of art—painting, pottery, glassblowing, sculpting, and graphic design. In addition to the learning about the elements of art like line, space, color, shape, value, form, and texture, this course introduces students to all types of careers in art fields.
