Art class is based on the elements and principles of art. Students learn about different artists and how their lives impacted the art world. That is a good way for students to see different art and to learn how these artists impacted our world and how the world affected the artist. Skills are taught throughout the year, as well as art behavior. Each grade level does something special such as field trips, projects like sewing, weaving or drawing on a higher level. Students are all taught the same skills during the year—just on different levels. Students are shown art they can do at home, similar to what was done at school. By using recycled items, my students can use anything to make art!
