The Art Curriculum is based on the Elements and Principles of Art. Introduced in Kindergarten and reinforced and expanded on as the student grows older, the curriculum is an ongoing and sequential process. Materials become more sophisticated as students learn and practice new techniques. Increasingly complex concepts are added, allowing students to build on prior skills and knowledge. Technology is utilized as a teaching tool throughout the curriculum and used as an art medium in middle school. When possible, projects are created using an interdisciplinary approach that requires flexibility and frequent development of new projects that will incorporate the classroom teacher’s changing curriculum and Art Standards for each grade level. Everything is designed to build enthusiasm for the subject that celebrates creativity and self-expression!
