Marvelous Masters - Grades 4-5

Marvelous Masters - Grades 4-5

MARVELOUS MASTERS PLUS by Arts Attack is an online program that focuses solely on teaching students about some of the great artists, teaching the artistic style of these artists, and having the students create original artworks in that style. It is designed for students and teachers who want a strong focus on the artists, as compared to the ARTS ATTACK CURRICULUM, which has a broader scope covering the elements and principles of art, drawing technique, self-expression, media exploration, and multicultural art, as well as the masters and their artistic styles.

MARVELOUS MASTERS PLUS has four levels designed for different ages (Grades K-1, Grades 2-3, Grades 4-5, and Grades 6-8). Each level has 9 lessons. Two of these lessons are warm-up lessons designed to prepare students to succeed with the lessons which follow. They focus on the color wheel, proper use of the paintbrush, and drawing techniques, including contour (right brain) drawing in the higher levels. The following 7 lessons each teach the style of a different artist, along with at least 12 artworks by that group of artists (including at least 1 by each artist). Accompanying each artwork is a discussion guide with background information on the artist and artwork, questions for classroom discussion, and suggested supplemental activities and extensions.

The great masters covered in Grades 4-5 are Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Franz Marc, Winslow Homer, William H. Johnson, and Paul Gauguin.
