The "Elementary 4-5" series of books introduces children to the visual arts and art in history through colorful illustrations and fun art projects. Elementary 4-5 Book 1 focuses on the elements of art (space, line, contrast) and composition (balance, depth, proportion).
Each Book 1 lesson fills five pages that follow the same format. The first page, "Building a Visual Vocabulary," explains the topic and makes connections to real world experiences. The second and third pages focus on American Art Appreciation and History as students apply new observations and learn about artists and the time they lived in. The fourth page covers techniques and how to use the materials and tools of art. The project is the last step, and includes pictures that other students have completed as well as a list of materials needed. Projects include adding value to a drawing, using hatch lines, creating silhouettes, drawing a variety of textures, and more.
Late Elementary books are written directly to the student and are designed to be completed independently. Lessons take one hour at minimum; two classes per week are suggested in order to complete the curriculum in a year.
A list of all required materials is provided at the front of the book. This revised and expanded 3rd edition offers additional art instruction specific to art materials and techniques used by artists. In addition, these 3rd editions now include four additional lessons (now 36).
