Second Grade: resist, illustrate, silhouette, theme, medium, symmetry, warm and cool colors
Third Grade: intermediate, overlapping, placement, 3Ddepth, illusion, tint, shade
Fourth Grade: contrast, pattern, placement, radial, balance, cubism, abstract

Below are some of the I Can Statements students will strive to achieve.
