The Lake George Elementary visual arts program provides students with a sequential program, which will develop skills in creating artwork based upon observation, personal experience, and imagination. Students will grow in their ability to experiment creatively, discover culturally, and examine aesthetics and criticism.

In art class the students:

  • Engage in standards based lessons which incorporate the elements of art and principles of design.
  • Explore and experience a wide variety of media, techniques, tools and processes in a safe and responsible manner.
  • Experience analysis of personal and historic art work as a part of each lesson (DESCRIBE, ANALYZE, INTERPRET AND JUDGE).
  • Employ a visual art vocabulary to discuss personal and historic art work.
  • Examine a variety of cultural and historical art through gallery, studio, and museum tours (ACTUAL OR VIRTUAL).
  • Effectively research and explore the range of careers that require creative knowledge and skills for problem solving.
  • Establish connections between the visual arts and other disciplines in the curriculum.
