1st Grade Curriculum

Grade One continues to build on the concepts taught in Kindergarten art. We still focus on the three specific areas, the elements of art, subject matter, and art skills. In grade one, however, depth of knowledge is stressed. A variety of assessment tools are used to determine the student’s synthesis of knowledge. Games, class discussion and production of art is used to assess student performance. We learn more art vocabulary and exposure to famous artwork increases. Classification of artwork becomes part of the art experience.
