Round Rock ISD presents the 20th Annual RRISD Elementary Art Exhibition on Tuesday, March 24th – Tuesday, March 31, 2015, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm daily at the Round Rock ISD Performing Arts Center, 5800 McNeil Dr, Austin, Texas.
Students in the Round Rock ISD (RRISD) Elementary Art program learn essential skills through the Aligned Round Rock Curriculum (ARRC) that focus on timeless and broad concepts employing the elements and principles of design. Students experience rich instruction in media and techniques through painting, drawing, sculpting, printmaking, ceramics, mixed media, weaving, collage, digital art and more. Additionally, students experience essential art knowledge through the elements and principles of design, art history, cultures from various countries, and critical thinking and problem solving skills. They become familiar with a wide range of materials and their use in artistic pursuits, and will relate their work to topical and historical events. Students also learn how to talk about art experiences and share their interpretation, thoughts and appreciation about various works of art. The RRISD Elementary Art program provides sequential visual art content and unique learning experiences at each grade level that helps students become more aware of their physical environment, extend and develop the use of the senses, and utilize inventive thinking.
