Course Description:

Visual art in grades 4 through 5 is based on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Visual Art.  Students in the elementary art education program build on the sequential learning experiences of the early childhood program that encompass art history, criticism, aesthetics, and production.  Art concepts are reinforced and strengthened through activities based on the elements of art and principles of design. Through self-reflection, which includes dialogue, reading, and writing, students analyze each component of their arts education as well as their own personal growth.  Students make connections between art and other disciplines while they utilize art community 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.
