Art

This year elementary students will attend art class on a 3 day rotational schedule.

Students will learn through the elements of art and the principles of design. Throughout the year, we will expose our students to a range of different artists and art styles.

We aim to provide our developing artists with a variety of experiences with art materials and mediums including paints, markers, pencils, clay and technology.

We will be using the National Common Core Art standards to guide our curriculum and enhance student learning.

National Core Arts Anchor Standards:  Visual Arts

  • CREATING: Conceiving and developing new artistic ideas and work.
  • PRESENTING: Interpreting and sharing artistic work.
  • RESPONDING: Understanding and evaluating how the arts convey meaning.
  • CONNECTING: Relating artistic ideas and work with personal meaning and external context.

 

In March we will hold our ‘Arts Alive’ exhibition to display the beautiful artwork created by our amazing artists! We will be holding all artwork until the exhibition, after which your child will take them home to share with you and enjoy!

How YOU can help.

Many parents ask what they can do at home to support their child. Give them time to create! Drawing, painting, sculpting with clay, building with toys or Lego, creating art on the computer and taking photographs –  all these activities help to support elements of the art curriculum.

Exposing children to art is also invaluable. Dubai offers a rich culture of art and creativity. Spending time with your child exploring galleries, museums etc. will help to encourage aesthetic choice while also forming a life-long love of art.

 

We look forward to an exciting fun filled year!
