Elements of Art
Does anyone have a list of the elements of art or a curriculum map that outlines which skills their district teaches at each grade level? Thanks in advance

I bought a book called Elements of Design and
used it to teach art 1st-6th (adapted for Kinder)and was also able to use it with 7th and 8th graders. I loved it because every child could succeed. It wasn't "draw my tree" cookie cutter art. It was equipping them with the techniques for different mediums so they could build on their own ideas. Pretty fun :) I teach kinder now and attempt to avoid all the Holiday art in order to let the kids express their own style during those times. It's tuff though.
