Welcome to Maple Grove Elementary Art

                    Children’s art is a pure joy. Something magical happens when a child loses themselves through art making. A strong art education can provide a student with many opportunities to explore their creativity, become problem solvers, and take ownership in what they do.


    Students this year in art will be learning about a variety of styles, techniques, media, and themes to help express these individual characteristics. Some of the techniques learned will include drawing, painting, collage, ceramics, sculpture and weaving. Students will get to experiment with a variety of mediums that include pencil, crayons, colored pencils, markers, oil and chalk pastel, paints, clay, and found objects. Some of the art lessons will be influenced by history and are usually targeted towards famous artists and movements. Other art lessons are also inspired by the world around us; literature, culture, and nature.
