Grade 5

Grade 5 Visual Art

The art room is a hive of activity. Here students build confidence, knowledge and skill in three areas of creative study: art production, art appreciation and art history. As students draw, paint and build, they learn to problem-solve creatively. Art history focuses on the art and culture of the ancient Greeks. Art appreciation encourages students to recognize and value art wherever they find it. Studio work is often integrated with other subject areas; for example, Grade 5 students enjoy creating a museum exhibit based on their literature circles.
