Welcome to the Elementary Art Department of NCCS. I am the art teacher for all the elementary schools in the system. This year each school will receive 11 weeks of instruction as Art rotates classes with Music and Dance.
All instruction is done with consideration for the North Carolina Essential Standards. The link for these standards is here
. Due to the length of study at each school many standards are met as we progress through the 6 year program. The art programs endeavors to provide experience in as many media as possible. We will work in everything from oil pastels and watercolors to acrylics and colored pencils.
Students will also have the opportunity to create collaboratively with each other to do large format projects. This allows them to learn to work in a team atmosphere as they develop 21st century skills for the workplace. Each student can use their particular skills and learn to encourage others in a cooperative atmosphere while producing a fun product. You may see large mobiles produced by the kids or big Eric Carle style collage.
