Middle School Course Description

  • Grade 7
  • Grade 8
Advanced Drawing & Painting
Elective Course | Half Semester | Open to seventh- and eighth-grade students only

This class requires a prerequisite. All students must have taken Fundamentals of Drawing & Painting prior to signing up for this advanced class, or receive special permission from the teacher. It is a rigorous class that will build upon the fundamentals of observational drawing and painting skills, where students will refine their capabilities by working with a large format and doing multiple revisions of both paintings and drawings. Students will be encouraged to explore their creative aspirations as they dig deep into what goes into making a great work of art. The focus will be less on doing a series of shorter assignments, but rather working in depth on a few projects. The class will require perseverance, determination and a strong desire to take risks.
