2nd Grade Art Curriculum

In Second Grade art the elements of art, subject matter, and skills, still play significant roles, as we explore each area more in depth. At this point new concepts are introduced and students assume a more active role in the educational process by responding to their own art and that of others. We focus on, not only, famous artworks, but also the historical and cultural significance of art. We begin to form more complex understanding of the processes behind the conception and creation of art. At this point the skills involved in art production, and the criteria for the art work created now becomes more rigorous. Included in our studies of art are a variety of civilizations and their influence on contemporary art.
