“Art Lessons in the Classroom”: ArtsEd Washington Curriculum Portal


Art Lessons in the Classroom is a series of visual art and art/literacy/mathematics-infused lessons for kindergarten through grade six. Foundational concepts, skills, and processes grounded in Washington State Common Core and arts learning standards are presented within a developmentally aligned learning continuum.

These lessons promote problem solving and critical thinking through an active and engaging approach to teaching, learning and assessment. Students develop knowledge and skills while creatively investigating a broad range of art materials and artistic processes. Infused lessons explore meaningful connections and concepts shared between visual art and reading, writing, math, and communication.
