Art

Sixth grade art offers a fresh approach to the basic principles and elements of design. Through manipulation of various tools, students will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in the areas of drawing, sculpture, painting, and printmaking. We will explore various media with the incorporation of art appreciation, aesthetics, art history, and art production. These four disciplines promote the development of artistic skills and creative problem solving.

 

Seventh grade art is designed to build upon the foundation of sixth grade art. This course focuses on the successful integration of elements and principles of design in new and creative ways. Students will have the skills to apply learned vocabulary and build a new and more expansive vocabulary relevant to course material. Students will continue to maintain a sketchbook with greater expressiveness incorporating various techniques. This course will provide greater emphasis and more in-depth study in the exciting realms of drawing, sculpture, painting, printmaking, and graphic design.

 

Eighth grade art focuses on the creative incorporation of past media knowledge. Students will be able to successfully create works of art with careful consideration of elements and principles of design. Students continue to have experiences in the areas of drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. The sketchbook becomes an integral part of each unit. Students will examine underlying philosophies about art as well as discuss art in historical context.
