Arts Alive Curriculum
With a focus on elements of Common Core, our Arts Alive! curriculum includes:
Art Vocabulary: All of our art lessons will introduce age and grade appropriate arts vocabulary. As our students move through the year and grades, this vocabulary will be continuously built upon and allow for a broadening of both their written and verbal skills.
Materials usage and proficiency: As important as developing art principles and building an art education is to our TJ students, lessons will also focus on the development of their proficiency with the tools of art. Age appropriate skills involving scissors, pencils, paintbrushes, and other typical art supplies will built upon as well as they go through the grades at Theodore Judah.
Art Principles: The Arts Alive program was developed with parent volunteer Art Docents. They have brought a richness of the applied arts, crafts, ceramics as well as the traditional visual arts. A coordination of lesson planning will now allow for a true “laddering” of art principles to be experienced through the years we have our students. Principles, such as Color Theory, Pattern and Line, 1 and 2 Point Perspective will be introduced and expanded on throughout the grades.
Being creative: Theodore Judah’s Arts Alive program offers a great exploration of how to be creative and starts students on the path of both learning and expressing themselves artistically.
