Art reinforces the multi-step solving process and makes interdisciplinary connections. The students explore a variety of 2 and 3-dimensional media, techniques and processes. The sequence of choices for each art lesson leads to unique solutions. The scientific method math problem solving, the writing process, and completing an art assignment, all follow the same pattern. Students develop a sense of art history and culture while learning about different artists and styles. Art vocabulary helps develop a greater verbal fluency. Art focuses on expressing oneself in a positive manner.
This year, students in 3rd and 4th grade have an art journal. The journal is used for sketching an planning art lessons, recording vocabulary words and reinforcing the curriculum.
