|Course Name||Instructor||Grade Level(s)|
|Printmaking & Mixed Media||Ashley Katamoto||7, 8, 11, 12|
Grades 7, 8
Printmaking and Mixed Media is a visual art course that applies traditional elements of design (line, shape, form, space, value, texture, color, time, and motion) through the use of non-conventional materials. Projects have an emphasis on creating original art from recycling, repurposing, and recreating objects found in everyday life. Students are encouraged to develop their own voice as young artists and broaden their view of what art is and what it can be.
Grades 11, 12
This course focuses on developing students’ understanding of how art connects to their life, community, and culture. This course continues to develop students’ self-expression and artistic techniques through rigorous and active engagement in the studio environment. Some of the projects are based on learning specific art media and techniques (i.e. portraits, printmaking, etc.) and others ask students to develop independent projects based on their personal inquiries.
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.
