Jack Anderson Elementary

Art

JAE’s fine arts classroom is a special place where creativity is encouraged and celebrated. Our kindergarten through fifth grade fine arts curriculum is designed to introduce beginning art foundations by providing exposure to art history in a studio setting.

Through both individual and group art projects, students will utilize the elements of art (line, shape, color, texture, form, value and composition) to create two and three-dimensional works. Our primary focus is to deepen students’ observational and expressive skills by observing, analyzing, and interpreting artwork in a variety of contexts and to extend their knowledge of both new and familiar media.

Students will be graded based on the level of effort shown and work completed.

VISION

Jack Anderson Elementary is an institution focused on academic excellence as well as genuine concern for the well-being of children.

MISSION
