Teaching the Grammar of Creativity
The art curriculum introduces students to the elements of art, history, aesthetics, art analysis, as well as art production. The course provides students with the means for self-expression while focusing on artistic literacy that enables students to interpret information conveyed by images and symbols. The curriculum considers the Virginia Fine Arts Standards of Learning as well as the interests of parents and students. Whenever possible, themes explored in the art classroom will correspond with the current core classroom theme.
