Art   2023-24


Visual Arts:

During the 2023-24 school year, students will review a variety of Art-making techniques, processes, materials and history related to the Elements and Principles of Art and Design.  In addition, the Wandell Elementary School Visual Arts Department will focus on Saddle River District Goal #1 by increasing student voice and choice in instructional settings to promote students' learning experience.   Students will be encouraged to have ownership, agency, and accountability by using their voices and feelings in various art projects.  

Cross-curricular Learning with Art:

Cross-curricular learning involves establishing patterns of information between different academic subjects. It offers a creative way of developing knowledge, understanding and practical skills through a study of interconnected topics.  In the 2023-24 school year, Wandell Visual Arts department will work with class room teachers for providing cross-curricular learning such as social studies topics including maps, seasons, landforms, Colonial America and Mesopotamia.
