MS Visual Art
At the Middle School level, students learn about advanced elements of drawing and painting, printmaking, form and sculpture.
The Middle School students develop art skills through deep explorations of work, often spending an extended period/semester exploring a single theme. They reflect on their progress through group critiques and continual self-assessments. Students keep a sketchbook and have regular drawing practice for homework. A subscription to Scholastic Art Magazine provides opportunities for discussions in art class, and helps students foster visual literacy and critical thinking skills.
