The objective of this class is to expose middle school children to several different mediums of art, educate them on art throughout history, discuss art concepts, and touch on individual artists. For example, students will make an owl made of beans while exploring mosaics in architecture of the Renaissance period. We will do a fun lesson on the “first selfies” and make a creative self-portraits. Students will have a drawing lesson on cathedrals and make a beautiful stained glass window using cd’s while learning about the Gothic period. These are just a few examples of the exciting things we will create while giving students the confidence they need to use their creative talents. We will always look at art through a Christian worldview and learn to see His creativity in talented artists and ourselves.
We will take one field trip per semester to an art museum. This is not required, but a great way for students to engage in a guided art experience.
Wednesday classes are open to grades 6-8.
Thursday class is open to grades 4-7.
