Elements of Art
The Elements of Art are the foundation that art stands upon, acting like Legos piecing together each stroke of a painting, line in a drawing and color on a palette. Students will take a daily approach to learning the Elements of Art, focuses on one element each class period with a simple project that corresponds most with that element. They will pull each of the Elements of Art together in one large project and end with a unit exam.
