VISUAL ARTS

Elementary

In Elementary art students become responsible citizens in the art room. They learn about the elements of art, art history, and artists. They have the opportunity to explore materials, create art, and express themselves.

Lessons incorporate the National Art Standards and use an inquiry based approach. Students make meaningful connections to classroom content and concepts. Art instruction teaches to the whole child.
