The first week of art class we got to know each other, learned the expectations for class, did a marshmallow sculpture challenge and started out first personal artworks. The fall semester focuses on 3D art , so 7th and 8th grade students will be creating with paper, cardboard, mixed media and then clay. Students have started their paper relief sculptures this week and they are off to a great start! The 6th grade group is learning about balance, line and design with their CD Mandala artworks. The 8th Grade year long class is learning about visual journaling and creating and entry with the theme of their "5 Core Beliefs."
