Explorations in Art
By Marilyn G. Stewart, Eldon Katter, Cathy Weisman Topal, Laura H. Chapman, Nancy Walkup
A NEW Standard in K–6 art curriculum
Theme-Based Learning
Unit themes show students the relevance of art in their lives and the lives of people across time and place. Elements and principles, skills and techniques, and forms and media are learned as tools that help students interpret the ideas of artists and express their own ideas through art.

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 technique illustrations; images from art and the real world; evaluation criteria for each studio; and art criticism.

Alignment to Language Arts
A five-step studio process, aligned with the five-step writing process, provides hands-on reinforcement of writing instruction and the cognitive processes critical to both visual and written compositions.
