The Vistancia Art Curriculum is geared towards all students with limited or no prior knowledge of Visual Art including the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. Students will explore and experience a wide variety of visual art areas including basic drawing, painting, design and mixed media. Students will have participated in the artistic process, which includes brainstorming, research, sketching, designing and critiquing while keeping in mind specific project requirements. Students will learn not only about production, but also art history, criticism and aesthetics. Artworks produced by students will be collected throughout the school year and placed into two separate art events; the Vistancia Arts in the Park and the Peoria School District Annual Arts and Cultural Festival.
