The Middle School in grades 6, 7, and 8 use a progression of analytical and conceptual skills with each art project. Students create aesthetic resolutions using the elements of art and the principles of design. Bold graphic projects combine visual awareness, ingenuity, and critical thinking. Famous artists, styles, and historical foundations in the world of art are studied, compared, and appropriated. Contemporary visual expressions are critiqued and students develop the knowledge necessary to make informed responses when communicating ideas about art. Projects integrate current social, cultural, and environmental issues for visual displays and exhibits viewed by the Oak Hill community.
