8th grade

Art
Interested in drawing, painting, sculpting and creating 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional artwork? This course utilizes 21st Century Skills and will build on the skills students learned in 6th grade Art. Students will have the opportunity to utilize various art tools, materials, techniques, and processes through exposure to and experimentation with different art materials. Students will also use the artistic process to evaluate and improve their artwork while responding to artwork from other artists and cultures. Some art projects may be self-directed, fueled by the students’ own interests with research in art history, cultures, and contemporary art.  Students are encouraged to express themselves in their own individual, honest, unique and creative way.
