    Art Information

    Welcome to another creative year in the art department.  As our school embraces project based learning, we have a wonderful opportunity for our young artists to learn about art in a "flex our 21st Century Learning Skills muscles" kind of way. In a nutshell, the learning will be student driven.  The younger grade levels (K, 1st, and 2nd) will have more direct instruction in order to build their skill set.  The older grade levels will have opportunities to explore a variety of materials and develop their own project ideas.  All students will have the experience of what it is like to be a true artist!

    All students in grades 1st-5th will have art class once a week for 50 minutes. Kindergarten will be have art class once a week for 30 minutes. In art class students will be introduced to artists, art materials, and processes that will teach them to think creatively, problem-solve, and work collaboratively.
    Students will receive a grade every quarter.  This grade accounts for the students brainstorming or sketching of ideas, use of class work-time, participation in small group discussions, contributions to class discussions, as well as their final projects.  
    Grading Scale:
       4- This student exceeds the expectations for their sketchbook, discussions,
             and final projects.
       3- This student demonstrates a full understanding of the expectations for their
             sketchbook, discussions, and final projects.
       2- This student demonstrates a partial understanding of the expectations for their
             sketchbook, discussions, and final projects.
       1- This student is consistently performing below expectations for their sketchbook,
             discussions, and final projects.

    If you have any questions or would like to volunteer or donate supplies (non-food recyclables are always welcome), please email your child's art teacher or visit us in the ART ROOM before or after school.  We are located in the front hallway near Music and PE.
