Welcome to another creative year at NCE!
This year NCE has been chosen to participate in the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Student Art Contest! NCE's little artists will be working hard to prepare for that in the fall. In the Spring we will dive into other artists, themes and materials.
Students will be learning about the elements of art and how artists use them to create. Students will also learn about why artists create and seek inspiration for their own art. Some artists we will learn about include Eric Carle, Henri Matisse, Henry Rousseau, Wassily Kandinsky, Vincent Van Gogh and Alexander Calder.
Students will be exploring more complex ideas and techniques in art. Students will use their knowledge of the elements and principles of art to create their work. Some artists we will learn about include Frida Kahlo, Claude Monet, Wayne Thiebaud, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Claes Oldenburg, M.C. Escher and Leonardo da Vinci.
Note to Parents:
Please dress students accordingly as artists can get messy while creating masterpieces! Closed toe shoes are highly recommended.
