Second grade students attend art class one or two times per week depending on the ABC schedule. The elementary art program emphasizes the process of creation as well as the created product. The goals for children in visual art include enjoyment of the creative process, exposure to a variety of mediums, use of art for fun and creative self-expression, and an appreciation of fine art. We explore the elements and principles of art (texture, line, shape, value, space, color), and study various artists along with their acclaimed pieces. Projects at the elementary level include drawing, painting, collage, mixed-media. When possible, art projects may compliment units of study in the Core Knowledge sequence.
