in the classroom
We are starting off this year studying the elements of art: color, line, shape, form, and texture. The goal of this unit is to introduce students to the building blocks of art. The knowledge gained from these projects in the beginning of the year will be incorporated into projects throughout the school year. My intention is to have students become familiar with the elements of art so that they have a strong foundation that they can draw on the rest of their lives. The beginning of the year is also spent going over important things such as: "How to safely use your scissors" and "Should we use gobs of glue that ooze all over? Or drops of glue." and "How to get your listening ears out." Here in Ms. Montz's classroom fun and learning go hand in hand.
