Fine Arts Department

Visual Arts

Students in grades 6 - 8 continue to need a framework that aids them in learning the characteristics of the visual arts by using a wide range of subject matter, symbols, meaningful images and visual expressions. These standards provide that framework in a way that promotes the students' thinking, working, communicating, reasoning and investigating skills and provides for their growing familiarity with the ideas, concepts, issues, dilemmas and knowledge important in the visual arts. As students gain this knowledge and these skills, they also gain in their ability to apply these to their widening personal worlds.

In grades 6 - 8, students' visual expressions become more individualistic and imaginative. The problem-solving activities inherent in art making help them develop cognitive,  affective and psychomotor skills.
