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

4th Grade

Building traditional skills in drawing and painting is emphasized through study of proportion, value, color mixing, and space. Principles of balance and unity in 2-D and 3-D are explored through constructing tactile collages and paper sculptures. In literacy infused lessons, students connect word choice, detail, narrative and figurative language with images.
