￼Welcome Thank you for taking an interest in your child’s art education. This year promises to be one filled with lots of learning and fun! The art curriculum for Kindergarten has four main goals. Students will: Make connections between art and their lives by communicating experiences and feelings through an exploration of a variety of drawing, painting, and sculpting materials and tools. Be introduced to a variety of materials. Reflect upon art through the development of a beginning art vocabulary. Incorporate a developmentally appropriate understanding of the elements of art and principles of design in their work. This website was created in order to help parents see first hand the learning that is taking place in the classroom. To facilitate this process, this website was created with three main purposes in mind: To provide parents with a general outline of the types of projects students will be working on throughout the year. (Projects are subject to change.) To showcase the amazing and creative projects done by this year’s talented group of Kindergarten students. To keep parents updated on any important information related to the art through the “Art News” section of this website. Please be sure to check this site often for updates and news items. Thank you once again for supporting your child’s love of art! The art department looks forward to this exciting new school year.
Kindergarten students are beginning the year by learning about different types of lines and the emotional qualities associated with them. After practicing making different types of marks in their sketchbooks, students filled in a life size outline of their bodies with as many different types of lines as they could think of. The kids are in the process of painting their projects with tempera cakes.
