Welcome to 2nd grade! The land where the natives strive to being first, correct, on time, the best and perfect. Not finishing a task, making a mistake and losing are not an option. Issues like schedules & routines, predictability & assignments, rules & justice, are now reasons for concern. 2nd graders want more responsiblility and independence. Theyre understand that they are unique and want to explore how that makes them special in this world.
As their art teacher, I want to expose them artist from the past that can develope their creativity for the future. They're going to learn various techniques on how to make art (and impress everyone who sees their work), Color Theory, Elements of Art (the tools of an artist) & Principles of Design (how the artist uses the tools). As stated above, I hope they realize how unique they are.
