The Goodpasture Elementary Art program is designed to inspire creativity within each child. Students enjoy a fun and enriching experience as we take on many different art forms. Art class is designed to ensure that students learn the basic art elements while creating works of their own. It is our goal that each student feels confident in their creative abilities and takes pride in his or her work.
Students use a variety of media including chalk and oil pastels, liquid and dry water colors, tempera paint, clay, paper mache, recycled art, and many more. Students also take an in depth look at artists from the past such as Vincent van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and Wayne Thiebaud. The artists’ works are studied including the techniques used. Students then apply what they learn to recreate their own versions of famous masterpieces.
