Students are also introduced to art history and the fundamentals of art criticism.
Grade 7 Drawing, Printmaking, and Mixed Media focuses on continuing to develop the students’ knowledge of the elements and principles of art and design through active engagement in the studio environment. The focus of the 7th grade year is for students to begin to understand art from a global perspective; projects focus on techniques and art forms from around the Pacific Rim. The projects during the semester allow students to explore themes of landscape, portraiture, and abstraction.
The University Laboratory School Art Department faculty is composed of a group of practicing artists, who possess extensive experience in their respective disciplines.
Each member of the art faculty develops, designs and teaches their own curriculum.
Our students are actively engaged in a studio environment. They produce works of art in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics and fiber arts.
