The first grade art lessons are designed around the understanding that first grade students are developing artists. Lessons are open ended, offering guided exploration to promote discovery and imagination.  Creativity is fostered to encourage personal expression.  Students are encouraged to create art works based on their memories, imagination, and personal experiences with their families and friends.  Students learn that their art work can communicate an intended meaning, expressing a variety of ideas, subjects, or emotions. They learn to see and identify lines, shapes, colors, textures and forms in theirenvironment and art works and begin to be aware of the possibilities of using these visual art elements selectively in their own art works.
 Lessons are designed to stimulate reflective thinking and encourage sharing and discussion about artwork. Students learn that their art work has value and meaning. They learn to value the art work of others and begin to understand it's meaning as well.
To encourage skill development, students are introduced to and experiment with a variety of processes, techniques, and media.  This introduction to a variety ofprocesses, techniques, and media will provide a foundation for future lessons and promote confidence in communicating visually through their artwork.
They are learning to describe the subject matter, emotive qualities, details and visual art elements in the artwork of others as well as in their own art works. They are learning to talk about their opinions about art work and listen to others' ideas.
The lessons are a dynamic and integrated part of the whole school environment, promoting connections to the classroom through shared lessons and displaying student artwork.  The creative and analytical nature of art lessons provide  strength to the education of the whole child.
