Art Education at Polaris

Tamara’s 2nd/3rd Grade Class


During the Fall Semester of 2018, Courtney and Layne are so happy to be teaching students in Tamara’s 2nd and 3rd grade class about art! Our unit with these students will be based around the big idea that art can be used format for an artist to tell their unique story. We believe that art is a form of visual language and it is very important that students develop a visual literacy; this visual literacy will enable students to make better sense of their world and the visual information they are surrounded by everyday! Students will create artwork that expresses their perspective about the world around them and tells us the stories they want to tell. We will explore the ways in which contemporary artists tell stories through their work. Students will be able to identify the ways in which artists (including themselves) can create artwork that leads the viewer on a visual journey with meaning and purpose.
