Course Overview:

The Visual Art suite will provide students 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 use a variety of materials safely during the creative process. The courses explicitly teach art techniques through modeling and connecting them to master artists. During the creative process, students will apply art vocabulary, procedures, as well as time-management and collaborative skills. They will develop their observational skills, prior knowledge, and art critique skills to reflect on and interpret works of art. Throughout each multifaceted lesson, students will make connections to art and various cultures around the world. The course offers 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, Social Studies, Science, Health, and Language Arts. Connections are made to Music, Dance, and Physical Education as well. The Visual Art suite will develop students fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, creativity, and their appreciation for global communities.
