Do you love making art? Do you want to learn more about how artists make their masterpieces? In this 8 week class Ms. Z. uses her classroom experience and the lessons she developed as a certified elementary art teacher to introduce the world of art to young artists. Each week's project focuses on an element of art (line, shape, color, texture, space, value, form) which are the basics of how artists communicate and create their artworks. Students will learn to use the elements of art...
-Students will be able to create their own masterpieces using the elements of art. -Students will be able to communicate about their artworks and the artworks of others using essential art vocabulary such as: line, shape, form, value, color, foreground, and background. -Students will build their fine motor skills while practicing their drawing and painting techniques.
I have taught elementary art for over 16 years and each of my lessons is developed thoughtfully and practiced ahead of time keeping in mind student skill level and interests. I am passionate about helping young artists find their unique artistic voices, and therefore I balance guided drawing with creative expression in this lesson. I aim to provide positive encouragement to students throughout our class time, and truly hope they enjoy our art club projects each week!
Students may wish to continue adding finishing touches after class time has ended.
Supplies Needed: Thick white paper suitable for drawing and painting Pencil with eraser Watercolor set (I like Crayola or Prang) Watercolor brush Bowl with water Paper towels Crayons Sharpie marker or black crayon (something permanent to outline) *Printed template from classroom page (for week 2 only) *Scissors (for week 2 only) *Glue stick (for week 2 only) **You may also want a larger poster board or something similar to protect student work area
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some materials such as glue and scissors may require parental guidance. In our class I will explain how to use our art supplies safely, but you know your child best and can decide whether or not they will need your hands on help to cut and glue.
