6th Grade Art

  • Course Description:

    In 6th Grade Art, students learn foundational art skills that prepare them for the 7th and 8th Grade art courses. Each project we create focuses on one of the Elements of Art: line, shape, space, color, value, form, and texture. Students study an Element of Art in-depth before each project, exploring how to use each element in their artwork to create certain effects and solve artistic problems. Self-reflection is an important aspect at the end of each project so that students can continue to improve their work. 


    All content covered during the course focuses on the State of Ohio Visual Art Standards for grade 6. Incorporating these standards allows students to develop foundational skills in perceiving, creating, and responding to artwork, while further supporting critical thinking and problem solving skills.

    We complete 6 art projects during the 9-week rotation, which allows students to experiment in various media such as paint, colored pencil, marker, paper collage, and clay. 

    Supplies Needed:

    6th Grade students should have a pencil with an eraser every day in class. Students create art folders on the first day of class that they also need to have each day.


    Students may bring in boxes of tissues or Clorox wipes for 5 extra credit points (limit 2 items per student).
