Visual Art, Mural Arts and Arts Integration at Justice Page!
- ART: Artists will deepen their creative and artistic skills through a variety of techniques and media including: drawing, sculpture, digital art and painting. We teach on a three-year rotation so content and projects will not be repeated if students take art every year. We will apply the Elements and Principles of Art, follow the Visual Arts Long Term Learning Targets for the Minneapolis Public Schools and incorporate school-wide themes into our projects. Student artists will deepen their knowledge of art vocabulary, learn how to edit their work based off of peer critique and exhibit their art. This mixed-grade class is very hands-on with a lot of variety and opportunities to explore new materials.
- MURALS (ART ELECTIVE)
Student artists will explore how murals represent a
community's identity, history and hopes for the
future. As part of this class, we will create a mural
for Justice Page Middle School or our broader
community that showcases who we are and where
we are headed. This project will involve engaging
collaborative and conceptual processes, examining
our own cultural identities as well as further
developing necessary painting and drawing skills for
large-scale public art.
