News from the 21st C. Art Room
This year we are continuing to explore things that art can do. We want our 21st century students to understand that art plays a role in everyday life.
§ Feelings - Art can express how we feel.
§ Identity - Art can show who we are.
First, we will explore how art can communicate how we feel.
First grade will explore color and feeling through the help of chameleons, who express their feelings by changing color.
Third grade will look at feelings shown in self-portraits through expressions and the artist’s style before creating their own self-portraits.
Fourth grade will respond to music through creating expressive skies and trees.
