Sixth through Eighth grade students are able to sign up for year-long Elective Classes and trimester-long Enrichment Classes. These classes are designed to provide students interested in Art the ability to explore different mediums and develop their artistic abilities.

Art Studio Elective
For those students who have enjoyed art in their K-5 rotations and now want the opportunity to learn more about the visual arts through discussion, research and hands on creation. This course includes a variety of art projects using several different mediums such as pen and ink, collage and clay. It also includes the opportunity to work with a guest artist and create paintings for the Hearts for Healing project. Throughout the year this class will allow students to demonstrate their growing artistic skill set and knowledge of the visual arts, including, but not limited to the elements and principles of art, as well as artistic masters and art movements.  At the end of this year long course students will have the opportunity to display two to three of their favorite projects in the school Art Show.

Art Enrichment
The purpose of this trimester long course is to give students an intriguing overview into the wonderful world of visual arts! Students learn about several artists and art movements all while creating a wide range of projects in several different mediums and styles.
