Art Curriculum

Here at TJES we have an outstanding art curriculum that spans all grades from Pre-K to 5th grade. Thomas Jefferson also hosts an annual art show and recognizes students weekly on every level on “TJ Talk Time”, the school’s morning news show as Artists of the Week. We have two art teachers on staffs, who see all students on a weekly basis.

  • Pre-K and Kindergarten students concentrate on concepts such as color, line characteristics, texture, shape and patterns. Projects include painting, collage,chalk,  clay and assorted drawing materials
  • First Grade students cover concepts such as primary colors, eye-hand coordination, real and imaginary inspiration, and weaving and tearing. Projects include painting, stamping, clay, chalk and assorted drawing materials.
  • Second Grade students will learn secondary colors, 3-D art forms, proportion and art from other cultures. Projects include clay, painting, drawing, paper making and weaving.
  • Third Grade students will focus on intermediate colors, warm and cool colors, positive and negative shapes, symmetry and contrast. Projects include, print making, clay, painting, drawing, art from other cultures and drum making.
  • Fourth Grade students will learn to use the characteristics of color including hue, tint, shade and intensity. They will apply hand building techniques in clay and use themes, ideas and art forms from the past. Projects include metal tooling, clay, painting, drawing, and stitching.
  • Fifth Grade students will use linear perspective, emphasize special relationships, use art in technology, and learn to mix hues, tints and shades to create works of art to name a few. Projects include clay, drawing, painting, computer generated art, paper making and printing.

Community Support Needed!

Please continue to make it known to your school board members that you LOVE art and want to keep it in the Bedford County curriculum. There are many important reasons to keep art alive and well! Art fosters creativity, problem solving skills, spacial relationships, increases school attendance, improves reading skills, supports the content areas, not to mention it's fun!! :)
