          The Sixth Grade Art Curriculum sets the stage for the Middle School and High School Art programs. Students make the transition from having art once a week throughout the year in Elementary school, to having art every day for an intense 10-week period.

          Students are challenged with a high level of critical thinking through a variety of projects, which are designed to introduce students to the language of the arts. Each project exposes students to new vocabulary, well-known artists, and new skills. Students assess themselves upon completion of each project and class art critiques are also an essential component. 

         Stories from life experiences become works of art. All students will research the life and the work of a contemporary artist culminating in a keynote presentation.
