Students will explore the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design throughout their year in the art classroom. Every lesson is interdisciplinary; students will be learning literacy and vocabulary, history, science, and math skills during art class. My teaching style adapts to the needs of the students.
My Goal: Every week, students will learn at least one new art-making technique, at least five new vocabulary words, at least three of the elements or principles of art and design, and at least one fact from another subject area.
Student learning goals are always posted in the classroom. There is an "I can..." board that will change week to week as art knowledge and skill level increases. We have an "Art Word Wall" where all of our vocabulary will be posted (by grade level).
