Art 5 gives students opportunities to work with a wide range of materials, from metal to watercolors, all while further developing their techniques and skills as artists through repeated practice. Students learn to analyze, interpret, and talk about art with their peers as well as other admirers of art. They are introduced to the idea of cultural associations and perceptions and are asked to look at imagery critically. In doing so, students learn to decide how the details of their own work could be interpreted by others. Throughout this course, students create artwork that will bring attention to topics they find important. Their work will illustrate their awareness of their surroundings and will show their developing artistic abilities.
