Students will learn the elements and principles of art and how to use these concepts in their own drawings and paintings. Students will spend the majority of their time in hands-on art making. Students will learn the vocabulary words associated with visual art through direct practice. Students will gain confidence in what they are doing and expand their concept of what art can be. They will understand the elements (such as line, form, composition, and balance) and learn how to apply them in their own visual artworks. They may see how art applies to their everyday lives and subjects in school and how it can help them observe everything around them.
