AOP LifePac Electives Art

LifePac Electives Art is designed for 7th-12th grade students. It is an introduction into formal art lessons. What your student gets from this course depends on how intensively the topics are practiced.

My Use of AOP Electives Art

I used some of the books for my daughter's high school art classes. She studied art for 3 years in high school and I used AOP Art along with additional resources during two of those years. In "Week by Week" in the menu above, I wrote about units 1 and 2.

My Opinion of AOP Electives Art

The subject matter of the books are the elements of art and topics in the books are taught throughout all grades in school. With AOP Electives Art, your students can learn the terminology and how the various elements and usage thereof affect the student's art, and in turn, the student should make the thought connection of how to utilize the different elements to better express what they are trying to communicate with their artwork. So my opinion is more on the good side with this curriculum set. And as leanring goes in many cases, what your student gets out of this course depends on the effort put forth by your student.
