Kindergarten Arts and Crafts
This course provides a foundation for children’s inherent artistic imagination and creativity by sharing the basics of art and making art. Students are introduced to lines, circles, recognizing and using shapes, creating a collage and concepts such as symmetry.
Young artists will also explore a variety of media such as pastels, watercolors, crayons, tempera, and pencil drawing.
A particular emphasis on this course is on creating works of art. In this semester students will work with clay, draw with pastels, make fingerprint flowers, draw barns and animals using shapes and recognizing lines using the student’s name.
Emphasis in the second semester students will be placed on applying what the students have learned to make more detailed works of art.
