    • Apply design literacy to a wide variety of traditional and new media.
    • Acquire increasing complex procedural knowledge, skill and craftsmanship in art making while exploring an expanded range of media.
    • Develop more sophisticated aesthetic judgment that supports the making and understanding of rich meaning in art.
    • Explore a wide range of notions about the meaning and purpose of visual art.
    • Form a broader knowledge and understanding of our rich and diverse historical and cultural heritage through art.
