Welcome to art class!  We believe that art is an essential part of the curriculum, stimulating whole-brain activity, teaching problem-solving skills, building confidence, and helping students make cross-curricular and multicultural connections.  In our class, we focus on the Elements of Art and Principles of Design and how we can use them in our work.  We explore the work of great artists, from cave paintings to modern art and discover links between art and society.  We increase our art vocabulary as we discuss famous works of art, and we improve our critical thinking abilities as we learn ways to improve our own artwork.
