Welcome to Art
Students will come to art class once a week for 50 minutes. Students will explore art and learn about art and artist. We will try alot of different media such as paint, clay, yarn, ink, paper, pencil, chalk, markers. We will be learning the elements of art (line, color, shape, texture,space, form, value). We will also learn about the principles of design (pattern. rhythm, movement, unity, harmony, variety, pattern, emphasis). We will explore printmaking, mosaics, pottery, collage, weaving, drawing painting and a whole world of exciting art.
My Classroom Mission
Our mission in art class is to use our imaginations to be creative artists. To learn all we can about art, artists and the Elements and Principles. To try new media and have fun. We will do this by listening, trying our best, being respectful and soaring.
