Visual Art 6-8
The South Fayette Middle School Visual Arts Program can be described as hands-on,
collaborative, creative, student-centered, interdisciplinary, rigorous and it makes "thinking visible".
The middle school art student will create art encouraged by essential questions, big ideas, themes, and art history. Hands-on activities, such as drawing, painting and three-dimensional methods will introduce the student to new media. Students may listen to inspirational music while they use their imagination to create their art. Developmentally appropriate lessons in Color Theory, Value, Perspective, and Proportion will be taught. The students will also participate in real-world “project-based” learning activities, utilizing the latest technology as a tool for developing their final product.
The visual arts program is ever evolving, and very supportive of the importance of the arts in education and in life as a whole. Dedicated to the idea that learning in the arts is an experience that’s a necessary part of the total education of middle school students, offering students many opportunities to explore their potential as the artists of today, and the artists of the future.
