- Publisher's Summary
- This comprehensive art curriculum can easily be integrated into any teachers' existing instruction and provides thrilling and rewarding lessons for elementary art students, including printmaking techniques, tessellations, watercolours, calligraphic lines, organic form sculptures, and value collages. Detailed lessons - developed and tested in classrooms over many years - build on one another in a logical progression and explore the elements of texture, colour, shape, line, form, and value, and principles such as balance (formal, informal and radial, ) unity, contrast, movement, distortion, emphasis, pattern and rhythm. Each lesson also represents an interdisciplinary approach that improves general vocabulary and supports science, math, social studies, and language arts. Though written for elementary school teachers, it can be easily condensed and adapted for middle or even high school students.A beautiful eight-page colour insert demonstrates just how sophisticated young children's art can be when kids are given the opportunity to develop their skills.
