8th Grade Course Description

  • Eighth grade art is based on in –depth studio based art projects.  Students use their knowledge of art principles to create, invent, experiment, take risks and solve artistic problems.  Eighth graders keep sketchbooks and art portfolios. Students also have the opportunity to work independently on self- designed art projects to showcase their talents and passions.  All projects at this grade level are geared to teach the young artists responsibility and ownership of their own participation in the art making process. Students study art history and aesthetics while expressing themselves in the following media: ceramics, printmaking with the printing press, painting, drawing, sculpture and photography.
