The middle school art program is offered to students in grades five through eight, teaching them a variety of concepts based on the elements and principles of art. The art curriculum draws inspiration from social studies in grades five through seven. Students learn about art in different civilizations, cultures and countries, and they apply that knowledge to several art projects. They not only learn how art is created, they learn why. In the eighth grade, art students are able to take Intro to Art, which is an Upper School course. Intro to art exposes students to a wide variety of techniques and media, with a strong emphasis on drawing. Students completing Intro may advance to Photography, Ceramics and Intermediate art.Click here
