Fifth grade students study Art for nine weeks each year as part of their fine arts rotation that includes Art, Choir, Drama, and Strings. During the nine week period devoted to art, students are exposed to the elements of art: line, shape, form, color, space, and texture. A variety of media is used, such as drawing, oil pastels, water media (watercolor, tempera, acrylic), collage, clay, paper mache, and mixed media in creating works of art. Students study artists as they relate to the art project. They also critique their own artwork.
