how does it work?
The art program consists of 12 art lessons for Transitional Kindergarten (TK) - 5th Grade. It was designed to introduce students to artists from different countries, eras and who work in a large variety of different mediums.
All of the art lessons and art projects have been tested and are designed to be age appropriate.
Younger students will be taught the basics art concepts and then as the students get older they will be introduced to more advanced art concepts.
The program was written to be taught by Art Docents (parent volunteers) and/or Teachers.
No art experience is needed to teach the Color Wheel Art Curriculum.
Each grade binder has detailed tips for teaching art,
Recommended on-site training at the beginning of each school year.
Prepping before the art projects can save a lot of time and frustration for the students. The time commitment before each project can range from just collecting the art supplies to tracing templates on a paper or canvas.
Most projects are designed to be completed in approximately an hour.
The entire art program was developed to be taught by "Modeling". Modeling is an instructional strategy in which the teacher/volunteer demonstrates a new concept or approach to learning and students learn by observing. Whenever a teacher/volunteer demonstrates a concept for a student that teacher is modeling.
