Art Class will be provided to all Pre-school through 8 th grade students at Columbia Crest A-STEM Academy within the 2023-2024 calendar school year. Our Art Program framework will be guided and planned around the Washington State Standards for the Visual Arts.

There are eleven standards that are essential for students to meet, and they are the same across all grade levels. Students learn these standards through the process of Creating, Performing/Presenting/Producing, Responding and Connecting. Students will use a variety of materials such as paint, watercolors, pastels, different types of paper, clay and everyday objects to create unique artworks which include their knowledge of the elements of art such as line, color and shape while incorporating principles of design like contrast, balance, repetition and movement.

Creating is such a joyful and freeing experience and we revel in that. Each artwork is unique and celebrated.
