1st Grade Arts Online-Full Year
This course introduces students to the world of art and architecture. Students learn about paintings and sculptures and see art that looks realistic and art that looks imaginary. Students discover how artists use lines, shapes, colors, patterns, textures, symmetry, and forms in portrait, landscape, and still life artworks. They discover ancient cave paintings and ancient art from Egypt, Greece, and China. Students draw, paint, and sculpt their own artworks that are inspired by the artworks they study.
