The Visual Art Curriculum for the Weston Public Schools is aligned with the Visual Arts Standards in the Connecticut State Department of Education Visual Arts Framework and the National Visual Arts Standards. These standards articulate what students should know and be able to do within the visual arts by grade level. Art experiences in the elementary school are structured to provide foundational experiences in the elements of art and principals of design. Students explore several age-appropriate media, processes and art history and appreciation based on familiar concepts such as Patterns and Feelings. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional projects are undertaken.
