Welcome to Visual Arts at Rolling Ridge Elementary School!My name is Olivia Sanchez-Dawson, and I am very excited to be a part of this great school community.
I teach visual arts to students in K through 5th grade. My goal is to make the visual arts room a place where students can discover and explore their natural talents and creative potential. Students will learn to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as develop a positive self-image of themselves and others.
The art program is based on the Loudoun County Public Schools’ Art Standards of Achievement (SOAs). Students meet once a week for 60 minutes. During that time students are instructed on studio process, personal expression, visual arts vocabulary, art production, art history, art criticism and aesthetics. A variety of tools and mediums will be used including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpting, collage, and ceramics. Students will also learn about world-famous artists, art movements, and arts in different cultures.I look forward to seeing what students will create this year in Visual Arts. Please call or email me if you have any questions or concerns at Olivia.Sanchez-Dawson@lcps.org
