    Visual Arts: Grades 5-8

    Students attend Visual Arts class for one quarter per school year.
    Classes take place Monday-Friday.

    During the quarter students will experiment with a variety of media including pencils, pastels, oil pastels, tempera paints, oil paints and watercolors.

    Projects range from realistic drawings to abstract art. In addition, students will be introduced to artists and periods of art.

    Students are graded on an A, B, C, D, F scale.
    To earn an impressive grade, a student does not have to be the best artistically, but try their best on every task.
