Welcome to the John W. Tolbert Jr. Elementary Art Program
The 9 week plans you see on the website or sent home with report cards are a brief overview of what your child will be learning in art. Occasionally some projects may change or new ones may be added. Due to class cancellations or sudden bursts of inspiration - no project is set in stone!
All projects help students to use their imagination.
Integrating art lessons with content from the classroom is very powerful. This is highly beneficial for those students who are visual-spatial and bodily-kinesthetic learners. It also allows students to bring knowledge they have learned in to the art room to demonstrate understanding or solidify abstract concepts from the classroom into practical use.
Lessons are carefully aligned to criteria in the Loudoun County Standards of Achievement, the Virginia Standards of Learning and the National Visual Arts Content standards.
