Welcome to Art 1
The Art 1 Curriculum is designed to introduce students to the Elements of Art, a variety of techniques and media. We will learn the language of art, which means how to; look at, analyze, critique, find meaning in, and talk about works of art. Students will be given the opportunity to explore different mediums and learn how to manipulate them to create their own art. Individual creativity, neatness and respect for the work of others is encouraged.
Why art is important
Art is everywhere; it affects everyone (even you) everyday! This is why it is important to understand art. When you understand art you understand why and how it affects you personally! Art provides an opportunity for self-expression, bringing the inner world into the outer world of concrete reality. The study of art also provide learners with non-academic benefits such as promoting self-esteem, motivation, aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity, improved emotional expression, as well as social harmony and appreciation of diversity.
