Visual Arts

Students experiment with a variety of art techniques and materials – such as printmaking, painting, sculpture, drawing, weaving, and collage. In addition to making art, students will also improve their art vocabulary and learn about art history through visual reference, group discussion, and critique.

Projects are designed for each class based on three criteria:
  • Students' previous knowledge and experience
  • Cross-curricular collaboration
  • Goals outlined in the Visual and Performing Arts Framework for California
Each art activity will introduce a new material and technique, encourage critical thinking and problem solving, and promote original thinking in making art.
