Preschool and Elementary Art Basics
Start the little ones on an incredible journey in art education with art appreciation! Young children can easily learn art concepts and techniques by studying from great masters and then applying them to fun, simply projects of their own, helping reinforce what they've learned about the master works of art. The key here is keeping things simple and fun, while also encouraging creativity. This art curriculum contains 10 art lessons for kids covering Center of Interest, Positive/Negative Space, Lines, Expressions, Shapes, Six Colors of the Color Wheel, Patterns, Eight Ways to Draw a Bird, Nine Ways to show Scale, and Ten Ways to Draw Structures. Each art lesson and project includes simple art vocabulary that is set in bold throughout the book. Most art supplies needed for the art projects are simple, everyday staples such as pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue, scrap paper and fun sparkles or embellishments. Develop fine motor skills and learn appreciation too! Offered in book form (72 pgs, pb.) or in PDF format on CD-ROM.
