ARTS ELECTIVES 7 & 8
7TH & 8TH GRADE ARTS OVERVIEW
Art education provides benefit unavailable through other means. Students are challenged to express themselves through various media. They learn how to interpret works of art with deeper understanding of style, sound, history, socio-cultural impact & meaning. Student learners of all styles and personalities are given unique opportunities to flourish. Involvement in the arts provides students with experiences to appreciate their environment with a more receptive and critical eye.
Seventh and eighth graders choose from a variety of electives during the school year on the trimester schedule. These classes are twice a week for 90 minutes. Drama, Vocals and Visual Arts are offered for the entire school year. Our popular musical class is offered as one of the our winter arts electives. Students must also commit to after school rehearsals making this our only class time and after school combination arts elective.
Each term we begin with an Arts Orientation where current arts teachers share with the entire 7th and 8th grade student body the details about the current class that will be offered. Below are class descriptions given to students during Arts Orientation for fall 2014 arts classes.
