The elementary art program in Rockwood is taught by certified art specialists. The program provides approximately 55-60 minutes of instruction every week. The program gives each student a quality art education based on art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetic awareness. Important art concepts are based on the elements and principles of design stressed at each grade level.
- Kindergarten: Intro to Art and the Art Studio
- First Grade: Line, Shape, Form and Rhythm
- Second Grade: Color
- Third Grade: Texture, Balance and Unity
- Fourth Grade: Value, Emphasis and Contrast
- Fifth Grade: Space and Proportion
These concepts will be attained by each student through an integrated approach involving art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetic awareness. Although specific elements and principles are emphasized at each grade level, all principles and elements naturally occur during the production component and are addressed at each grade level.
