Related Arts/Special Classes
Bethesda Elementary students are on a 5 day special class rotation. Students have physical education twice a week. Students attend music, library/technology, and art classes once a week. Guidance classes are usually twice a month.
The Art Department at Bethesda creates an atmosphere for students to learn a variety of techniques using the usual supplies of crayons, markers, paper, clay, etc. Art history studies movements in art and the way artists have influenced and been influenced in the world around them. Technology has been used to help students search for information and create reports comparing artworks. Students are encouraged to do their best to create a piece of art while learning techniques, the elements of art and the principles of art. Motivation comes from looking at other artists and things around the environment. Art is photographed and displayed on Artsonia.com, at the Frist and the Factory in Franklin in the Spring at the Williamson County Festival.
