The break down of classes:

Arts and Craft K-2nd & Arts and Craft 3rd-5th 

  • Every other week will be either arts or crafts (This will give the students an option to explore all things art, by not putting the students in a full curriculum if their not ready to commit.) 
  • These classes are for children to have fun and explore. Especially if their not familiar with the whole concept of art.  
  • This is an introduction to the fundamentals of art. 

Intermediate Art (5th-8th) 

This class is more demanding.

Intermediate art is a full curriculum guided class.

It consists of:

  • Building an art Portfolio
  • Painters Tape Art
  • Accordion Books
  • Silhouettes- includes Color Theory 
  • Pinch Pot Creations
  • Optical Illusions
  • Outer Space Art
  • Surrealism
  • Art centers
  • Landscape Art 
  • Marble Art

Note!

This class will have homework that will need to be completed!

It is imperative that my art students complete their homework, because it goes along with creating portraits and projects. 

If the homework isn't complete, the students will be uncertain and have less confidence to complete art projects in class.

Some projects will take two classes to complete, being the class is much more advance.

It's important that all students have discipline and be able to listen when I give instructions.  We have limited time to complete class, so when everyone is quiet and attentive, we can accomplish a lot in our class!
