 Students will explore the subject of Art using the Elements and Principles of Design. We will be using a variety of art-related media such as clay, paint, watercolor, charcoal, graphic design, etc. Concepts will be presented at varying degrees and age appropriateness based on the National Core Art Standards. Studio time will take on a cause-and-effect approach, where mistakes and accidents, as well as intended skill-building will lead to advancements in learning. The growth will be in artistic aptitude, an increased understanding of cultural, and historical contexts, as well as S.E.L. awareness. 

The art department is currently working on refining the standards-based report card to reflect a letter grade based on a 1-4, as opposed to last year’s 1-5 scale, which will be implemented in the first trimester.

 The National Art and Music Associations state: “The educational success of our children depends on creating a society that is both literate and imaginative, both competent, and creative.” These associations further state: “Without the arts to help shape student’s perceptions and imaginations, our children stand every chance of growing into adulthood as culturally disabled.” Let us not let this happen. We depend upon your support, and thank you in advance for all your help in making the “Arts” come alive for all students in Middletown.
