New Art Curriculum!

We are very excited to announce that the Grovecrest art program has a new art curriculum this year! 

(Parent volunteers can go here to access the new curriculum.  However, we have had some technical problems with this blog, so if you can't access the new blog, you should have had the lessons for your grades emailed to you). 

New lessons have been written specifically for each grade that follow the state core standards and objectives for visual art.  As in years past, we will rely on our wonderful parent volunteers to teach these lessons to the students.

Kindergarten and first grade students will be creating projects inspired by popular children's picture books.

Second - fifth grade will be studying great artists throughout history and various art styles.  They will create projects that will enhance their drawing, painting and creative skills.

Sixth grade students will study specific elements, such as perspective, illusion, architecture, color value, etc.

The art room has also had a make over!  You will find all new supplies, large art posters, and children's picture books that go along with each lesson. 

We are also looking forward to a special Arts Extravaganza night next spring, where each child will have artwork on display for the school and community to enjoy, as well as special performances from the school choir, ballroom dance team, and musical groups.  With all these exciting improvements, we can't wait to see the amazing creations our students will come up with this year!

Thanks so much for your support.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
