Prairie Elementary is excited to offer a new Art Education program this year for 3rd and 4th graders. These art students will be learning and creating all sorts of amazing things! Students will have one hour of art each week in their classrooms. They will spend their time learning about color theory, drawing techniques, art history and about the elements and principles of design. Students will learn about all different types of art and explore many different styles and mediums such as pencils, oil pastels, charcoal, watercolor paint, tempera paint, mixed media and more! All the while, there will be Math, Language Arts, Technology and Social Studies connections included in these art lessons for some cross-curricular learning. All students will leave art class with a strong capability to solve problems creatively, a skill that is widely used in today’s society.
