Art for Students
Students in grades K-5 experience art projects as designed and delivered by their classroom teachers. Whole-class projects are seasonal, providing opportunities to celebrate the seasons through visual arts. Small-group projects often include artistic representations through a variety of genre, including book covers, posters, self-portrait, three-dimentional structures, scale drawings, maps, charts, and graphs to name a few.
Art is a universal language and a window into children’s communication and expression. In every class K-8, Art4Schools provides a classical supplement to regular classroom instruction. This art curriculum includes art lessons and regular projects that focus on drawing and painting with an introduction to ceramics, sculpture and basic three-dimensional concepts. Students will develop basic technical skills, as well as learn concepts such as line, shape, value, form, and color. Lessons are often inspired by a master artist or a cultural/historical context that encourages students to explore topics from other perspectives.
