6th Grade theme "Art Critique and Create"
In 6th grade we will continue to work on mastering the elements of art and principles of design found in a work of art. This concept will be accomplished through the basic 4 steps art critique, which will be taught. The students will use higher level thinking through open ended questions about a variety of works of art. A sketchbook will be created to record art history and develop ideas through sketches. Extra 3-dimmensional projects will be produced with more freedom into theme ideas and choice of materials. It will be a positive environment to express ideas and create individual projects.
For the annual art show at Kilmer, 6th graders will have the opportunity to create an individual artist booth at the Makers-Faire. This will encourage student leadership as they teach and present an art idea to the K-5 students attending the hands-on 's art show. It's a wonderful chance to have fun, teach, create and lead with a community art event.
