Who, where and what made art happen?

We'll explore and create art projects based on eras throughout art history,
from prehistoric times through our modern age. Art makes learning about the history of our world come alive!!

This year, grade 6 students will have art class twice per 6-day cycle for the second half of the school year (semester 2).

MA Visual Arts Curriculum Frameworks Standards for Grade 5-8.
