Art Programs

Upper Grade Art

Students in grades fourth through sixth receive a one-hour art lesson once every six weeks, which is provided by the district's skilled and talented art specialists. Lessons are based upon the Irvine Unified School District Art Matrix Plan and the California visual arts content standards. Sample lessons include contour drawing, negative space, visual awareness and paintings by the masters.

Primary Art 1st-3rd Grades, Segerstrom Center for the Arts

The Segerstrom Center for Arts program brings master artists to life for children. This program is designed to introduce students to visual arts techniques and engage them in the creative process.  Each lesson challenges students to learn new ways to look at the world around them, practice new visual arts skills at their level and reflect on their own process. Our Deerfield teaching artist will be teaching six lessons that engage students in the creative process which includes risk-taking, innovation, observation, creative problem solving, interpretation, reflection and refining of skills.
