Middle School Art and Culture

In Grade 7 Art and Culture, students study the art of various countries and time periods. This class will investigate how people can express their traditions, beliefs and daily actions through art, with a focus on the use of symbolism. Students will create artwork in the style of each country studied. Sample projects include Chinese brush painting, Native American pottery and South American weaving. Different media are introduced as well as the basic elements and principles of art.
