The ￼￼Art Master program at Top of the World offers sequential study in visual arts designed to complement history, social studies, and language arts frameworks. Each year, six artists and/or artistic styles are selected for study in units that include:
- Student practice pages to combine the study of an art element related to the master artist’s style or technique with the practice of skills necessary for success in the art activity
- A lecture and presentation assembly, delivered by an artist, where students are introduced to each art master or culture through a combination of stories, visual aids, and slides at grade-level settings
- A classroom art activity, led by an accredited art instructor, planned to relate to the master artist or style by technique, style, and medium.
Artists and/or cultures studied during the course of this year’s program are listed below. ￼The Art Master program is presented to TOW students courtesy of its PTA, thanks to the generous support of parents, the Laguna Beach community, and the ongoing contributions of its many in-class and program volunteers.
