Welcome to Art

2016-2017

Curriculum

I have a year of fun and exciting new projects planned for the students!

Each project will focus on 1 or 2 Elements of Art. These 7 elements are the foundation of art. They provide the basic knowledge students need to understand what they see and create. The Elements of Art are:


· Line

· Shape

· Color

· Value

· Form

· Texture

· Space



In addition to introducing students to these elements, I incorporate a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. I want to give every student an opportunity to connect with their art and feel successful. Being a ‘good artist’ can show in so many different ways!
