The Columbus School Arts program provides all of our children with positive and memorable experiences. I look forward to creating pathways in which students actively engage as observer, creators, and critical evaluators. Diverse, challenging, and imaginative art experiences develop students physically, intellectually, and emotionally. My goal is for students to develop a lifelong appreciation of the Arts. Students get to work with many different mediums throughout the year: crayons, markers, oil pastels, watercolors, tempera paint, papier mache, yarn, and several other age appropriate mediums. We study the elements and principals of Art and look at famous artists and their artwork as well as several different cultures every year. Students explore expression of their ideas in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms, and work on developing an artist vocabulary as well as techniques while they create works based on master artists and art movements.
Elements of Art= Line, Shape, Color, Form, Value, Space, and Texture.
Principals of Art= Balance, Pattern, Rhythm, Harmony, Variety, Emphasis, and Unity.
