Welcome to Elementary School Art!
This year students in grade K-5 will have the opportunity to work in a variety of media in the art studio. Art units of study are based on the NYC Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Visual Arts and are scaffolded from year to year to build on student understanding and technical skills acquired in years past. This fall, the units of study will be:
K: Drawing (oil pastel) Foundations
1: Drawing (oil pastel) Family Portrait
2: Painting (tempera paint) New York City
3: Sculpture (clay) Animal Figures
4: Collage and Color Theory (hand-painted paper) Still Life from Observation
5: Printmaking (scratch foam relief) Utopian Landscape
I am in the process of adding more information and resources to this site, so please stay tuned! I am looking forward to a creative and productive year in art with the fantastic artists at PS/IS 49!
