Art in the Afternoon Online - Grade 8

Art in the Afternoon Online - Grade 8

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 8 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. Grade 8 features I Madonnari sidewalk painting, aboriginal art, and a wire & fabric sculpture. There is another Series on a Theme, and students study and learn the styles of the artists Wassily Kandinsky, David Hockney, Albert Bierstadt, Andy Warhol, Edward Hicks, Alexander Calder, Frank Stella, and Roy Lichtenstein and then create original artworks in their styles. Students definitely get exposed to more modern art than in any previous Grade level. Another feature of Grade 8 is a comprehensive overview of careers in art and how to prepare oneself to build a portfolio and get into a good art school.

The Grade 8 program includes 12 lessons, 3.65 hours of instructional video (shown to the students and featuring classroom demonstrations by other eighth 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.
