Meet the Masters
This is a program designed for K-8 grade students. Students learn and study about famous artists and their techniques.
Each unit of the curriculum has three parts to the structured, discipline-based instruction:
- An assembly is given introducing an artist with slides, music, and participation-based critiques.
- An art packet is done in class which reinforces art elements and terms introduced at the assembly.
- Finally, a hands-on art activity in the style of the master artist, exploring different media and techniques, is completed.
Each art activity is geared towards individuality, creativity and success. The introduction of many different media, techniques and styles builds students' confidence in their own artwork, and gives them skills for the future.
This program is free for students and is sponsored by the Cerritos Elementary Educational Foundation (CEEF).
