Welcome to Art. In art class this year the students will be learning and reviewing all of the Elements of Design. The Elements of Design are color, line, shape, texture, space, form and value. They will learn about the color wheel and different color schemes. The students will also be introduced to several different artists like Georgia O'Keeffe, Vincent VanGogh, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Piet Mondrian, Robert Indiana, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Wayne Thiebaud, Edgar Degas, James Rizzi, Jim Dine, Wassily Kandinsky, Laurel Burch and Claes Oldenburg. We will be using all different kinds of media like watercolor painting, tempera paints, oil pastels, chalk pastels, markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
The main Bible verse I will be using in art class this year is We are to honor God in the way we work. Col. 3:17. I will be using other Bible verses throughout the school year.
I look forward to getting to know your child and helping them be as creative as they can be.
