The Innovations Fine Arts curriculum includes instruction in various art mediums as well as art appreciation. In the elementary grades, students participate in weekly instruction focusing on the basic art principles of form, composition and methods. As students move into the middle grades, instruction focuses on specific disciplines of 2-D, 3-D, painting and sculpture.
Integration of the arts with current units of study happens through the grade levels. In this project, 1st and 2nd graders studying “Simple Machines” were introduced to simple machines as an artistic tool and the process of block printing.
Middle school students choose between an “active art” and a “fine art” elective. 2-D and 3-D art are examples of some of the fine arts classes offered as electives. Techniques in painting and different art mediums are offered to the students through their exploration of “fine art”.
