Art in the Afternoon Online - Grade 7

Art in the Afternoon Online - Grade 7

Art in the Afternoon Online is a downsized version of the award-winning Arts Attack Online visual art curriculum. It is designed for those after school programs that do not have the time available to teach a full year’s curriculum, but wish to implement a cost-effective easy-to-teach, high-quality art program as an enrichment activity during the time that they do have available.

The Art in the Afternoon Online Grade 7 program provides an age-appropriate balanced approach to teaching art – emphasizing both the fundamentals of art and creative expression. Taught to the right side of the brain, it emphasizes the art elements and principles, drawing technique, self-expression, artist appreciation, art history, multi-cultural art, and media diversity. Many of the lessons connect to the medieval period, such as Medieval Castles, The Court Jester and Royal Portraits. Students do a color value study, a series of expressions on a theme and make books by hand. Right brain (contour) drawing skills continue to be developed and emphasized via a 2 lesson drawing workshop. Students study and learn the styles of the artists Paul Klee, Albrecht Durer, and M.C. Escher and then create original artworks in their styles.

The Grade 7 program includes 12 lessons, 3.65 hours of instructional video (shown to the students and featuring classroom demonstrations by other seventh graders), a digital art image program with discussion guides, lesson plans, student drawing aids, teacher reference materials and much more. Being video-based, it can be taught by teachers or parents with little or no art or art education background, as well as by those with considerable art education training – achieving exceptional results in both cases.
