The Third Grade Fine Arts course presents the basic elements of art: lines, shape, color, value, texture, form and space. The focus is on learning these elements and incorporating them in creative projects. The course also includes the study of some of the world’s greatest artists and their works, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Paul Klee. Class time will be devoted primarily to hands-on art projects. Each project will be introduced with the teaching of art elements and study of the featured artist’s biographical information, media and techniques.
