Characteristics and expressive features of art (elements of art and principles of design) are emphasized in two‐dimensional and three‐dimensional work. The development and application of basic techniques, skills and technology are stressed. Students learn to respect their own and others ideas, artistic expressions and personal style as they objectively analyze and evaluate works of art. Art history and culture studies will focus on regions within the 6th grade, social studies curriculum.
