Fine Arts K-8
Art has traditionally been integrated into classrooms by the classroom teacher, but this year we are seeking more community volunteers to help us launch an Art Masterpiece Program K-8 during class times, and an afterschool Art Masterpiece Club.
Art Masterpiece Workshops
Meet the Masters
Art has traditionally been integrated into classrooms by the classroom teacher, but for the upcoming year, we sought out experts to help us launch an Art Masterpiece Program.
Concordia Chicago has provided a full Art Masterpiece Curriculum. “Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories, a tool to promote visual literacy through artwork. Recognizing visual cues in a work of art as well as being aware of the times and conditions in which an artist lived enables students to better interpret its imagery, draw conclusions about its effectiveness, and speak critically about the art.
Art education research indicates students enjoy a richer art experience and improved visual comprehension when the following four disciplines are included in the art experience: Art History (the study of past artists), Art Aesthetics (response to art), Art Criticism (discussion of art using art vocabulary), and Art Production (hands-on making of art).
Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories focuses mainly on art history by providing a biographical sketch of the artist and an image of one of the artist’s specific works and details about that work. It also provides class discussion questions and ideas for hands-on exploration. Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories is a free, downloadable resource with ten lessons per grade level.” Concordia Chicago
Meet the Masters Curriculum
“Learning – With Meet the Masters, the study of each artist begins with a multi media presentation where students learn about the fascinating lives, background and culture of the artist and the world he lived in.
Practice – The second component of Meet the Masters includes worksheets, which reinforce the assembly material. Students practice the techniques that made the art unique.
Project – In the final step of Meet the Masters, students create their own masterpiece in the same medium, style or subject matter as the master artist.
