4th Grade Art Curriculum

Grade Four is the culmination of the Elementary art experience. Elements, subject and skills are still focused on, as more of the principles of art are included in the educational process. Decision making skills, and critiquing, have become a crucial part of the art program, Our clay program moves to include coiling and joining techniques. Students have a more in depth understanding of painting techniques and are now well versed in reproducing spatial relationships in the creation of art works. We focus more now on our environment and use these observations to create art. Responding to art works of our own and that of others is key at this point. Included in our studies of art are a variety of civilizations and their influence on contemporary art.
