Elementary School Visual Arts
The ACS Elementary Art Education Program is a sequential curriculum, developing interaction between each student’s creative expressions and their appreciation for art. This provides maximum opportunity for each student to have hands-on experiences in producing their art, enhanced by the integration of art history, art criticism and aesthetic critiques. Art education classes at the elementary level will encourage critical and creative problem-solving skills, as well as empathy for historical and contemporary art works. The program is designed to encourage perceptual awareness, through the involvement of all of the senses, and allows for the integration of other curriculums, as art readily relates to all educational experiences.
