What Do We Learn?
It is the intention of middle school Art to provide students with an introduction to more advanced rendering skills. For the first time for many students, an emphasis is placed upon mastering (not just trying) new techniques. Students study famous artists and world cultures in hopes of providing a well-rounded cultural experience that encourages compassion and critical thinking about the contemporary world. Additionally, Ms. Z. appreciates technology, and incorporates many digital lessons into the curriculum.
