Course Description:

Elementary art provides students with experiences to learn how to communicate through art, develop skills and a sense of craftsmanship through technique, to appreciate historical and cultural aspects, to make connection with real-life and other subjects, and to develop critical and creative thinking skills. Students also learn self-control and gain self esteem as they gain knowledge of individual and collaborative activities. Students are encouraged to show respect for themselves and others, learn cooperation, and craftsmanship. Students are encouraged to participate in all activities, have fun, include others and give their best effort.
