SIBLEY-OCHEYEDAN VISUAL ART
CONTENT AND ACHIEVEMENT STANDARDS

The Sibley-Ocheyedan Art Curriculum is based on the National Visual Arts Standards as they apply to the four components of Discipline-Based Art Education .

ART PRODUCTION refers to the art-making process. This component is what most people think of as “classroom art.” The component should include knowledge of and experience with materials, tools, and techniques. From this foundation, students develop skills that allow for enriched self-expression.

ART HISTORY/HERITAGE leads to an understanding of how art records and reflects various cultures. Students learn to question the who, what, when, where, and why of an art piece. This results in the ability to recognize and appreciate artworks from cultures past and present.

ART CRITICISM teaches students to recognize the elements and principles of design and the technical and expressive qualities of art. Through this component, students learn how to interpret art content and meaning, which enables them to discuss works of art using appropriate vocabulary.

AESTHETIC UNDERSTANDING analyzes characteristics that classify an object as art. Students learn to identify factors that influence the meaning of an art object. It combines the abilities to see, interpret, evaluate, and express individual understanding.

PERSONAL EXPRESSION helps students become more aware of how to depict themselves and their surroundings in more realistic ways, until they are ultimately able to develop a personal style of artistic expression.

Different components can be used to plan goal-oriented art experiences. Every lesson will not contain all components but, will contain any which support the art process as they apply to the National Visual Arts Standards.

“The child only remains fixed on a single image or on a way to draw if he is not presented with other models, or encouraged to seek our other ways to draw.”-  Marjorie and Brent Wilson, Teaching Children to Draw.
