Elements of Art K4-K5

My name is Carissa Parr and I have been a homeschooling parent for 13 years.  I have been teaching art for several years in the community, and I'm excited and thankful to be able to teach at CHSEL.

This year, our younger set in K4-K5 will be learning the 7 elements of art (line, color, shape, texture, form, value, space) through painting, printing, drawing, use of chalk, 3D forms, and clay sculpture.  This will be fast paced, full of movement, lost of mess, and a great deal of fun!  No supplies need to be purchased for this class as your supply fee will cover everything. Aprons will be provided, but you may want to have the kids bring an old shirt to keep things extra clean.
