ARAA04: Art 1 (2022)

Art 1 is designed so that first grade students experience the fundamentals of art. The elementary visual arts program is aligned to DoDEA College and Career Ready Standards Arts, CCRSA, (National Core Arts Standards,NCAS) and provides opportunities for a variety of experiences such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, and mixed media that can be used throughout life for communication, expression, and enjoyment. First graders will be introduced to beginning concepts of the elements and principles of design and will build on art concepts introduced in kindergarten, as the DoDEA visual arts standards are vertically aligned.
