More than just an art class.

Mixed Media for grades 6-8


Mixed Media

Students use mixed media and repurposed objects to create both two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork. Students learn to problem solve and construct complex sculptures, often with lighting or moving parts. 3D artwork is created using cardboard, clay, wire, paper, paper mache, plaster, wood, fabric, and other materials. They learn a variety of art techniques, such as printmaking, relief printing, working with metal, abstract and realistic art, pop art, kinetic art, and one-point perspective. Projects often are inspired by contemporary artists. Projects are usually on a large scale and take several weeks to complete. No project is repeated for at least 2-3 years. Snack is offered during class.
