FINE ARTS 1
Students in the first grade art program continue to refine their fine motor coordination, while learning to express their thoughts and feelings through art. Colors, shapes and lines are a reoccurring theme where students learn to apply them through art inspired stories.
FINE ARTS 2
This integrated art curriculum is based on two fundamental elements: the development of art skills and understanding, and the emotional enrichment that art can bring. Focus will be placed on manual skill and visual experience of the world. The content of the course will include drawing/painting skills, learning the fundamentals of design, working with clay and sculpture and enriching the students’ imagination in expressing their thoughts and feelings through art.
FINE ARTS 3
While reviewing the elements of the previous grades, students broaden their drawing and painting skills. They are encouraged to learn and experiment with different media, including charcoal, crayons, chalk, various drawing and colored pencils, watercolor and tempra paints. Non-drawing projects may include weaving, collage and Japanese woodblock painting.
