There are 31 teachers delivering visual arts instruction in 74 elementary schools. The art program provides activities in drawing, painting, art history, sculpture, printmaking and crafts. The program is sequentially developed based on disciplined based art education. Art concepts are taught through activities based on the elements of design: line, shape, form, texture, space, color and value.
Thirteen itinerant elementary art teachers participate in an Interrelated Arts program. This elementary art program uses the Maryland content standards and indicators for reading, writing, science, mathematics and social studies as a framework. The Interrelated art program is organized around core themes and issues taken from the school system’s curriculum. Teachers in this program provide art resource services to fifty-two schools that do not have full-time art teachers. Currently, there are three itinerant art teachers assigned to the TAG elementary schools. These teachers develop art lessons based on the core curriculum developed for the TAG program.
