Middle School Art is a fine arts semester course. Middle School Art provides a fundamental visual arts introduction and will develop basic two and three-dimensional compositional skills with various media. Semester I serves to be a prerequisite for Semester II as we seek to apply practiced concepts and skills acquired first semester, to the second semester of study. Students are not expected to have previously developed art skills entering Semester I, but may already have evident abilities or a great deal of interest in visual creativity. In the Semester II course, students are expected to have developed basic fundamental compositional skills through its prerequisite. Students at this level will continue practicing and developing abilities and advanced craftsmanship, creativity, and imagination in producing more fulfilling, expressive, and content-rich creative works.
