Elementary Visual Art
Designed and Instructed by: Mrs. Rosenblum
In the overall classroom, the prominent objective is to guide the students to grasp the reality that God is the first and ultimate Artist and Maker of heaven and earth. John 1:1-4 states, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men". By being good stewards of our God given abilities, we'll recap and expand on our multisensory skills based on the Elements of Art: line, shape, color, value, form, texture, and space. Principles of Design: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity/variety will be introduced to the students too. The students will be encouraged and challenged to stretch their imagination, explore art history, view well-known artists, apply a variety of art mediums and techniques, understand there is a process to a project, express and articulate their perceived idea, and plan how they will arrive at the end of the product design. While enjoying the creative process, the student's hearts and minds will be guided to honor the Lord with their varying abilities in the education of art.

The application of the two categories will be accomplished through the following art techniques: drawing, painting, small sculpture, and fiber arts. Along with an art journal, the students will be compiling a portfolio containing their progressive art work from the entire year. Some of their work will be sent home through the school year, but a majority will be retained for display and special events at the school.
