Common Content for all Art Classes:
The focus of our art classes is to engage students in studio art practices. In addition to learning about the tools and materials that artists use, students will also gain experience in imagining their own ideas and making them into art.
Students will engage in a number Studio Artists activities when creating art work. Learning about new techniques, materials, or subject matter often requires some research. Artists may use sketches or small models to help organize their thoughts and try out ideas. Artists also spend time in their studio practicing new ways to use materials and tools in preparation for creating a new work of art.
Opportunity to explore and practice using tools and materials is an important part of the studio art process. Students are encouraged to think about and make creative decisions about their work. Students work at their own pace and the number of projects completed by each student will vary. Projects that may not seem successsful by adult standards can never-the- less provide important learning opportunities for students.
