Art’s Essentials Elementary Level 4 is based on the Elements and Principles of Design. Its focus is on areas of Studio Art, Commercial Art, Computer Graphics, Architecture, and Engineering. It is a multi media broad based curriculum with the goal of being on the exact specific skill level of Level 4. The subject matter is also age level appropriate. This program will lay down the essential skills necessary to understand and create artworks by teaching basic techniques in a variety of media. It will challenge the students while they are learning but not be so overwhelming that they are frustrated. It is meant to inspire success. Each lesson addresses special needs kids as well as the gifted and talented, giving suggestions to meet their needs. The lessons are time tested, scope and sequence oriented, with one lesson building on the next. By the time they reach Level 4 they should have had a good foundation of art to draw from. They will take previous knowledge and expand upon it, being given more freedom to express themselves creatively. While previous years focused mainly on how to use the supplies and how they work together, Level 4 will take that knowledge and allow students to become more creative with it.
