Welcome to Elementary Art at Cedar Creek!
Students will engage in a centers-based art curriculum that encourages them to explore their artistic skills through diverse media. Students will be taught about an artist, a technique, or a theme and then be allowed to pursue their own interests and create artwork that is meaningful to them.
My instructional methods are based on the TAB theory which stands for Teaching for Artistic Behaviors. The students' focus in each piece of art will be the learning process of making art, rather than the final product. Quality artwork will always be a goal, however the process of creating such artwork will drive instruction, reflection, and feedback. Students will be monitored as they explore new materials and supported as they refine and master skills with previously familiar materials.
On Art days please remind your student to dress appropriately; we aim to have a hands-on creative experience that occasionally gets messy!
Ask your student about our Mona Lisa-like studio atmosphere.
