Fourth Grade Art
Through the lens of American Art, fourth grade students investigate observational genres of art: self-portraiture, still life, landscape. They become aware of American history and symbolism and stories, as they relate to works of art. With a focus on understanding the messages behind works of art, students continue to develop their craftsmanship and fluency with art techniques in painting, drawing, and clay. Currently, students are working on a Chuck Close-inspired self-portrait, using a photograph that they took of themselves and referencing that photo by creating a grid drawing.
