Art class is a place where students get to experiment, learn technical skills, brainstorm creative concepts and most importantly have fun!
Student projects are centered around the Elements of Art and Principles of Design as well as the National Core Art Standards in Visual Arts.
Students in grades 4-8 create sketchbooks which are used during the class period to develop drawing skills, take notes and explore different mediums before completing finalized projects.
All students K-8 create a portfolio of work spanning the whole year. Students in grades 3+ create artist statements after the completion of a project to reflect on their work and set goals for future pieces.
Many projects are centered around studying a specific artist, time period or style of art and creating personal works in that style.
Medium and Processes students will explore include:
Painting- acrylic, tempera, watercolor
Weaving & fiber arts
Observational drawing techniques
Drawing using pencil & colored pencils
Pastels- chalk and oil
I look forward to seeing your student in Art!
