6th Grade Art (04077601)


Length:  Semester

Format:  Meets Every Other Day

Description: In the course of this program of study, sixth (6th) grade students will create visual art works with a variety of media, techniques, and processes. Through the processes they will learn to more effectively communicate their ideas. Activities used to reach the art goals may include observational drawing, tempera painting, and pastel drawing. Color, theory, and composition will be introduced. The students will experience creating three (3)-dimensional art while working with copper repousse. The hand-building technique of pinch pots may be used to construct a clay sphere as a starting point for a sculptural design.
