Art progarm at Heatherwood strives to create an early appreciation and
passion for art and extends the classroom curriculum through
subject-related art projects. Students in the younger grades (K-2) are
introduced to the basic elements of art via projects that explore line,
texture, form, shape, color, composition and value. Older students
(grades 3 - 5) are challenged with more complex projects using the
elements of art and studying more artists and art-based careers.
Heatherwood, the students will be discovering many things about the
elements of art (color, line, shape, texture, and space) and the
principles of design as the children draw, paint, sculpt, build,
observe, and talk about art. There will be many different art materials
and techniques used to communicate students ideas and
feelings. Students will be learning about artists and art from
different cultures as well as having fun learning and making Art!
