Arts FUNdamentals is a K-5 drawing and design program. The scaffolded curriculum teaches the foundational elements of art and principles of powerful design, as well as the skills of close observation, drafting, envisioning, reflecting, and revising that are the cornerstones of the creative process. Guided by a master Artist in Residence, teachers and their students engage with a wide range of media to practice 21st century skills and learn how to express ideas visually. It is a three-year program and includes a half-day of professional learning for teachers.
Arts Impact Staff can work with your school community to design and implement an Artist Residency based on your specific needs. Timeline, artistic discipline, academic focus, and curriculum can be adapted to your students and community.
