The Number One K-6 Art Program

What sets Explorations in Art apart?

Theme-Based Learning
Unit themes such as Traditions and Identity show students the relevance of art in their own lives and the lives of people across time and place.

Process-Based Studios
By learning a process that emphasizes the importance of thinking, planning, and reflection, students go way beyond "make and take." Studio support includes inspiration from fine art and real-world photos.

Alignment to Language Arts
The Teacher's Edition includes point-of-use suggestions for helping students connect art instruction to skills and strategies in reading and writing.

eBooks, Grades K-6
With Davis Digital's intuitive eBooks, you can easily find lessons, view thumbnails of every page in the books, or conduct a search by artist, concept, or keyword. The zoom allows you to magnify any page up to 300%.

  • Brilliant fine art images.

  • Art criticism based on fine art and student artwork.
