In the Art Room

We are taking an imaginary journey through time to expand our knowledge of art and artists throughout the centuries. This study of art and art history is covered over two consecutive years. Students will look at works of art and try their hand at a variety of styles and techniques representing major periods. Within this context, students in all grades will build their art vocabulary, study artwork from different periods and cultures, and practice skills with different media. Students
will also be using the elements of art  in planned and organized ways to create art.

Year 1 Prehistoric cave art, Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and Africa, as well as the Italian Renaissance, and Impressionism.

Year 2 Chinese characters, scrolls and brush painting techniques, Medieval art & architecture,  Northern Renaissance, Romanticism/Realism, Asian art , Post Impressionism, and Modern Art.
