Art’s Essentials is based on the Elements and Principles of Design. It is a multi media broad based curriculum with the goal of being on the exact specific skill level of each grade. This program will lay down the essential skills needed by teaching basic techniques in a variety of media. It will challenge them while they are learning but not be so overwhelming that they are frustrated. It is meant to inspire success. The lessons are time tested, scope and sequenced oriented-with one lesson building on the next. They start out with one class lessons, getting longer and more difficult with each grade level.
