 The art classes at Round Valley School are taught within the New Jersey State Art Standards for visual art. At the beginning of the marking period, the students be given a book on the principles and elements of design created by the art teacher. This book will be used as a guide and reference for the marking period and up coming art project units. The project units are mostly production with focus on the elements and principles of design with the inclusion of essential questions, art history, criticism, and aesthetics. The students will start to realize that art production, history, criticism, aesthetics, and the state standards are all included in the world around them from fine art work to product design. Each project starts off with a slide show introduction of professional art work from famous artists as well as work form former students. I show these slides so that students can get a good vision of what is expected. Then they can write or draw down the ideas that interests them the most and use these ideas in their own project concept. This type of introduction into a unit is a great way to get the creativity, imagination, and enthusiasm into their project. A final grade will also be given upon completion of each project.
