Below are the suggested target understandings and skills for sixth grade visual arts:
  • Making Art and Expressing Meaning in Art - Express a variety of moods by controlling the overall value of a work of art. Create more realistic cast shadows and shading. Create an illusion of depth by applying the rules of linear perspective and aerial perspective. Prepare and organize steps and materials to create art.
  • Appreciating and Decoding Meaning in Art - Observe and learn how artists have used the horizon line as the eye-line. Learn the three properties of color and some basic color relationships. Discuss how social conditions; politics, available technologies and other contextual forces may have influenced important artworks.
