The focus in elementary school art is on understanding the seven elements of art: line, shape, form, value, space, color and texture. Through our various projects we will explore how we can use these elements to create pieces of art. We will study various artists and explore different mediums. The following National Core Art Education Standards are also being addressed in each of our projects:
- Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work.
- Organize and develop artistic ideas and work.
- Refine and complete artistic work.
- Students use art materials and tools in a safe and responsible manner.
Our art program works closely with the Secular and Judaic teachers to develop an arts curriculum that is integrated into their course of study. Overall, it is important for the students to have fun in art and feel good about what they create.
