5th Grade

Fifth grade students come to the art room once every 3rd shool day for 40 minutes. The curriculum continues to build on the information students have been learning in grades k-4. Students explore art making with a variety of materials to create both two and three dimensional art forms. Art lessons include information about artists, art styles, and art from around the United States. Students practice talking about their own art and the art of others during class and informal critiques. Students are evaluated in four areas, 1) historical, cultural, and social contexts, 2) creating and producing art, 3) critical and aesthetic response and 4) attitude and work habits.
