By the end of the 2020-21 school year, students in all grades, K-6, will have an increase in access to fine arts lessons and materials. Students will use a variety of art-making tools through experimentation, build skills in various media and approaches to art-making.
Students will prove mastery and participation through portfolios (containing their artwork, handwork, and descriptions and pictures of projects), parent and student feedback, and culminating events such as festivals and finished projects.
This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.
1. Teaching assistants will be hired for handwork and gardening classes. 2. Additional materials and supplies will be purchased to increase and enhance fine arts including beeswax crayons, watercolor paper, colored pencils, modeling supplies, wool, cross stich material, cloth, needles, etc. 3. Students will have the opportunity to participate in after school fine arts enrichment programs at various times during the year. 4. Students will participate in the planning, creating, and building of gardens, structures and various projects. 5. Students will experiment and develop skills in multiple art-making techniques and approaches through practice.
6. #6 measurement was modified that we took pictures of student work in the hallways and shared art displays or completed art projects in the school newsletter and these were viewed by parents walking in the halls. Many pieces were also featured in our yearbook. Student art was displayed during our festivals and school events for parents to view.
