7th GRADE ART...Seventh grade art is a semester course which meets every day of the six day cycle. Students will study historical and cultural influences of the visual arts as they create art projects that reflect their own sense of artistic expression and communication. They will produce artwork in a variety of media during the semester. Fundamental drawing skills will be introduced as students are involved in drawing, painting, and/or printmaking. Style, movements, artists, and significant events in art are introduced as they relate to what is being studied. Computers and emerging technologies, slides, videos, reproductions, posters, art works, and demonstrations provide enrichment for many of the areas studied. When possible, student projects are integrated with team activities or multi-disciplinary units. Students learn to look critically at works of art and are taught how to use appropriate vocabulary during discussions and critiques.
