Art should be a fun class where students are able to express themselves with their imagination. The students will learn about Art historical events, famous artists, different techniques and learn the principles of Art.
The Art curriculum will have each student develop new artistic ideas. Students will interpret artistic work. They will understand how the arts have meaning. Lastly, the students will relate artistic ideas with personal meaning.
In the lower grades we will learn the basic Art techniques – color theory, painting, watercolor techniques, etc. The students will study Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring, Claude Monet, etc.
The upper grades will learn more involved projects, techniques and materials. This includes color theory, perspective, still life drawing, etc. Artists studied will be Georgia O’Keefe, Op Artists, Georges Seurat, etc.
Each week an artist of the week will be chosen by the Art teacher from a project that each student may voluntarily submit from home. There will also be centers in the classroom for all students to enjoy. Examples: painting, sculpture, etc.
In the spring an Art Show will be held for the parents/guardians to enjoy.
