ARA101: Art 6-8 A (2021)

Art 6-8 A (9 weeks; 1st or 3rd Quarter) is a visual arts course for students in Grades 6-8 in which the artistic processes of creating, producing, connecting, and responding will be experienced in a nine-week 'wheel' course. The visual arts program is aligned to DoDEA College and Career Ready Standards Arts, CCRSA (National Core Art Standards, NCAS) and provides opportunities for a variety of experiences such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, and mixed media that can be used throughout life for communication, expression, and enjoyment. Students will build on  concepts of the elements and principles of design and art concepts introduced in elementary school, as the DoDEA visual arts standards are vertically aligned.
