8th Grade - Art

What we are working on now:

8th graders have been getting really creative working on a Surrealism project. We looked at examples of Surrealism and talked about what makes Surrealism unique. Students then started planning out what they wanted to do for the project. Some are making statements about a concern they have, others are using satire, and others are just making dream-like artworks. They had the choice to use acrylic or watercolor paints, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, water soluble graphite pencil, graphite, oil pastels, or Sharpies.

Core Knowledge Curriculum:

We are currently looking at 20th-century sculpture. This year we have looked at Painting Since WWII (Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Post Harlem Renaissance art), and the development of photography.
