Students in grades 1-5 attend art class once a week for 50 minutes.

 

Art education classes at the elementary level provide students with the opportunity for hands-on experience (art production), as well as the integration of art history, art criticism and aesthetics.  Through their artwork, students build skills in many areas, including self-expression and problem solving.

 

Major themes around which the art program are centered are:

  • Experience in a wide variety of media including drawing, painting, weaving, ceramics, collage, assemblage, printmaking, photography, and computer imaging.
  • Integration of art and the regular classroom curriculum
  • Study of art forms from diverse cultures
  • Study of art history, including masters and how their work related to other art work of their time and culture

 

Program highlights:

  • Student artwork on display throughout the building
  • Off-campus art show at the LCPS Administration Building
  • Student art work displayed at the Park View Cluster's Fine Arts Night 
  • 5th grade yearbook designs voted on by the entire fifth grade class.The top five designs will be featured in the 2013-2014 yearbook.
