Course Description:

Visual art for grades 2 through 3 is based on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Visual Art.  As they progress through grade 3, students receive sequential learning experiences in an early childhood art education program that encompass art history, art criticism, aesthetics, and production.  Art concepts are reinforced and strengthened through activities based on the elements of art and principles of design.  Throughout the program, students engage in various forms of communication, utilizing a rich art vocabulary and a variety of technological resources.  Through exploration of varied media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles and sculpture, students learn basic art making skills while developing critical and creative thinking skills.
