Elementary Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA)

Highlights from our Art lessons

Our Visual and Performing Arts Team visited elementary schools throughout our district to teach students about the "Elements of Art".  These are principles found throughout various works of art and include: Line, Shape, Texture, Value and Color  Students then participated in leveled projects to create their own art, inspired by the artists we studied.

Students learned about the works of:

  • Paul Klee
  • Keith Haring
  •  Georgia O'Keefe

HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR music LESSONS

Students learned about Pitch, Notes, Melody, Chords, Ostinato & Syncopation then utilized their skills in this finale.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR drama LESSONS

Our students are so dramatic!  Of course, in the best sense of the word.

This year, students learned about:

  • Stage Presence utilizing Creativity, Commitment and Concentration
  • The Use of the Mind, the Body and the Voice in acting
  • A strategy named C.R.O.W. in which students examined conflict resolution in acting by examining:
    • Character
    • Relationship
    • Objective
    • Where? (Setting)
