Art 210 | Teacher: Miss Danielle Gangi | dgangi@sfaacademy.org

During the 2019-20 school year, SFACA students will continue to study the basic elements that make up art: line, shape, color, value, texture, form, and space.

Pre-K and Kindergarten students will explore the elements of art by concentrating on few mediums such as crayon, colored pencil, marker and paint. Narrowing the mediums will give students the opportunity to arrive at a better understanding of each. Pre-K students will explore art through illustrated childrenโ€™s literature. Topics each week will relate/align to the UPK curriculum. Kindergarten students will create a project each week that highlights a letter of the alphabet. Students may also create seasonally relevant art projects each month.

1st Grade and 2nd Grade students will explore the elements of art by concentrating on mediums such as crayon, colored pencil, marker, and watercolor paint. Students will learn basic drawing and painting skills as well as techniques such as collage making. Students will also be introduced to art history by doing projects inspired by artists. Students may also create a seasonally relevant art projects.

3rd Grade and 4th Grade students will explore the elements of art by concentrating on mediums such as crayon, colored pencil, marker, tempera, and watercolor paint. Students will learn different drawing and painting skills. To prepare for the upper grades, students will be asked to keep a sketchbook of artwork (this will be their homework each week). Sketchbooks provide an outlet for creativity and are a great way to practice skills learned in class. Sketchbooks are considered a cumulative project that will be assessed at the end of each trimester.

5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Grade students will delve deeper into the elements of art by concentrating on a broader range of mediums (including but not limited to: crayons, colored pencils, markers, led pencils, pastels, ink, charcoal, tempera and watercolor paint). Students will be expected to keep a sketchbook throughout the school year to reinforce their knowledge of the elements of art as well as practice techniques learned in class. Sketchbook are considered a cumulative project that will be assessed at the end of each trimester.

7th Grade and 8th Grade students interested in attending art high school are welcome to ask questions and seek guidance about the portfolio process.
