Lists, Objectives, & Suggestions by Grades
There is a lot of overlap in art. Students start out by learning about the simplest tools through play or directed study, then each year, new concepts are added while old ones are expanded. Throughout all grades, students should be exposed to art from all eras of history, including the performing arts, and they should learn about the artists who created the works.
