To help our students keep up on their creative art skills, here is a site that offers some art making activities.
Here's more to the art than just being beautiful
Students in grades 1st through 5th often complete and attach an "I can tell you..." slip to the back of their artwork before they bring their work home. This slip serves many purposes. It is a review for the students as they read and complete the statements on the slip, it is additional practice of reading and writing in the art room and it serves as an informational source for parents/caregivers about what was learned in the art room while the students were creating the art.
Elements of Art
The Elements of Art are the basic components of art-making. We use one or more of the seven elements (line, shape, color, value, space, form and texture) to create each of our beautiful works of art. Understanding the elements of art and how to use them is important in producing art, so we recognize and discuss the elements involved in each lesson as we create. Knowing the elements and principles of art also help us connect with and appreciate works of art.
