Middle School Curriculum

  • Arts
Visual Arts Concentration 7–8

This concentration encourages students to investigate and practice art concepts and techniques used to create art objects through an expanded range of materials. Students will be guided to look at and respond to the work of historical and contemporary artists, in and outside of school, in order to inspire ideas and gain new perspectives around the purpose and process of art-making. Assignments, most in class and some for homework, are designed to practice creative thinking, develop problem-solving skills and build an art vocabulary. Projects will include independent and collaborative efforts. Students will show their work in ongoing exhibits across the campus, keep a digital portfolio documenting their art-making process and create a traditional portfolio of their art by the end of the year.
