The Concord K-5 Art Curriculum is based on the following philosophy:
All art lessons are sufficiently open ended to encourage individual problem solving at appropriate developmental levels. While the design of the art lessons directs students toward a specific concept or lesson objective, one of the unique aspects of the art curriculum is that there is never a "right answer". Student artwork is not supposed to look a certain way, or to replicate a teacher's or another artist's work. Instead, problem solving and end product belongs to each individual student. At all levels, art lessons aim to encourage students to consider these questions:
Art classes meets once a week. Classes in grades 1-5 are 60 minutes, and Kindergarten Art classes are 30 minutes.
Art is messy work, so please make sure your child wears clothing that can get dirty on Art day!
