Middle School Visual Art
In middle school art, we make it a mission to keep a student's love of
the creative process alive and thriving. Students have longer art
classes and are able to come to art class more frequently.
Responsibility also increases as students begin to maintain their own
sketchbooks, write art reports, engage in class critiques and begin to
work more independently on their studio projects. Middle school art
encompasses not just the history and production of art, but challenges
student thinking with concepts of how art fits into our society, why art
is important to us, how to be well versed and appreciate art as an
educated, individual thinker. All of this pulls into to our overall
belief in a discipline based art education, combining art production,
art history, art criticism and aesthetics.
