The Evergreen Charter School Art Curriculum focuses on integrating studio art and art history in an engaging, creative, and imaginative environment. Many projects and discussions integrate art with the classroom curriculum. Technology works seamlessly in supporting lessons, incorporating use of smart boards, Internet, printer, monitors, as well as iMacs computers.
Art history and aesthetic visual discussions make frequent use of projected images. Students discuss various aspects of art, such as color, space, line, and form; how these images make them feel; what they see; and what they like and dislike. Knowledge of famous artists and the culture or art movement they were part of also plays a role in students acquiring an understanding of art and the context in which it is created.
Studio projects relate to concepts covered in the visual presentation and discussion.
Students occasionally visit the computer lab to look up artists as they work on specific projects.
