Students engage in art lessons centered on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for each grade level with a focus on the elements and principles of design.  Students learn about famous artists throughout history, and create artwork in their style.  Using a variety of media, Armstrong students have a lot of fun experimenting with different techniques.
