Well, we do art! But there's much more to it than that.
The State of Georgia has standards for every course and Visual Arts is no exception. So, along with the State Standards each grade is seperated into different Art themed courses. I have designed these courses to build upon eachther year after year. For example, 6th Grade starts by learning a plethora of Art Mediums and the basic techniques in which to use them.
7th Grade then builds on top of that knowledge and learns how to compose a cohesive piece using The Elements and Principles of Art.
Then 8th Grade takes all their knowledge and will apply it to Art History and Art Appropriation. Students will learn to glean from famous artisits and attempt to recreate famous techniqes and famous pieces of Art.
