You know how much I love See the Light. I would encourage you to use their art curriculum whether I received compensation or not. All opinions are my own unless otherwise indicated.
Many students need to take a high school fine arts course to meet their graduation requirements. Depending on the school, students may need either a half or full art credit. This may be accomplished by taking either visual arts, performing arts, or an art appreciation course. Let me show you how SEE THE LIGHT products will provide instruction for a visual arts course.
Pat Knepley is the Master Artist at SEE THE LIGHT. She is also a member of the National Art Education Association. Pat has inquired about the National Visual Arts Standards. They are as follows:
- Visual Art Standard #1: Understanding and applying media techniques and processes.
- Using new materials and techniques appropriately.
- Visual Art Standard #2: Using knowledge of structures and functions.
- Understanding of art elements and art principles and using appropriately to complete a project.
- Visual Art Standard #3: Choosing and evaluating a range of subject matter, symbols and ideas.
- Evaluating how artworks differ visually and how symbols are used in history and culture.
- Visual Art Standard #4: Understanding the visual arts in relation to history and cultures.
- Describe and explore meaning of specific Art works within time, space and culture.
- Visual Art Standard #5: Reflecting upon and Assessing characteristics and merits of their work and the work of others.
- A student’s self evaluation once project completed.
- Visual Art Standard #6: Making connections between visual arts and other disciplines.
- Art and literature
- Art and history
- Art and science
- Like color theory
It typically takes 60 hours of instruction for a course to qualify for a half-credit. Students will receive 70.5 hours using SEE THE LIGHT products for their high school fine arts course. The best part is the students do not need to leave home to receive a quality art course.
