Introduction to Art Online - Grade 2

Introduction to Art Online - Grade 2

The video-based Introduction to Art series is a cost-effective way to get started with the Arts Attack curriculum. Each grade level consists of 12 lessons with a 1-Year subscription designed for use in a single classroom by the classroom teacher, art teacher or parent art docent.

The Introduction to Art Grade 2 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, and media diversity. In Grade 2 we begin to teach the technique of right brain (contour) drawing, which will be the focus of all drawing lessons going forward. Students study and learn the styles of artists Henri Matisse, Claude Monet and Amedeo Modigliani and then create original artworks in their styles.

The Grade 2 program includes 12 lessons, 3.1+ hours of instructional video (shown to the students and featuring classroom demonstrations by other second 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.
