|MRS. KING WELCOMES YOU TO ART!
|THE WAY WE LEARN
In Mrs. King's art class, children are taught a developmental, comprehensive study of art principles and art elements through hands-on orientation. Students enter the room ready to listen and learn as the day's goals are established. There is focus time for sequential study, individual practice, and reflection using Baldrige tools for data collection.
Using a variety of media allowing students to investigate their strengths,creativity is taught,encouraged, and applauded!
Everyday life skills including time management, sharing with others, proper use of supplies and tools, and respect for all stakeholders is modeled.
Have a look at our curriculum. Mrs. King integrates all art lessons with the regular classroom teacher's curriculum.
|WHAT WE LEARN
VISUAL ARTS CURRICULUM
Meeting State and National Standards are the goals of each lesson.Students are aware of the objectives to be taught each day.
Student-generated rubics help us individually determine if goals were met.
MONTHLY GRADE LEVEL FOCUS:
Art class is integrating with their writing, reading, math, and science curriculums.We are analyzing well known art work depicting cat shapes, movements, texture, and moods.
Of course, then we create our own originals! Check out our hallway galleries to see the results of our learning!
