Art with Miss Casey will be with grades 3-8.
This week we will be doing a step by step Santa drawing. Each child will recreate their own Santa. Please have your child hang up his/his artwork somewhere in the house for vacation.
Through the early years, children explore with the use of crayons, markers, and clay. In the elementary Art program, students learn to handle a variety of medium and the techniques to express themselves with these materials. In the lower grades, freedom of exploration is encouraged and in the upper grades, the methodologies of art and drawing are emphasized. Throughout the Art program, appropriate usage of the vocabulary and techniques of various artists is stressed and practiced. Art History and art appreciation are part of the curriculum. Students are provided with examples of the professional artist's work. The older students begin to confront challenges of the adult artist: rendering objects in the third dimension, perspective, and shading.
