Orchard Art

  Move over Picasso and Van Gogh!  Here at Orchard Drive Elementary, students are making their own masterpieces by exploring a variety of thinking processes, art forms, materials, and techniques.  Art concepts are taught through developmentally appropriate activities based on the elements of design: line, color, shape, texture, space, and form.  The purpose of these activities is to help students develop an awareness of, and appreciation for, the skills in communicating through art.  Through the exploration of varied media, students learn basic art-making skills while developing critical and creative thinking skills.
