视觉艺术

概述

An appreciation for the visual arts takes Maumee Valley students on a journey of expression and storytelling as well as one of building skills and terminology. Students look at art, 谈论艺术, make their own art, and visit the 沃尔夫画廊, our on-site exhibition space. Maumee Valley students develop methods to communicate their ideas by experimenting with materials while focusing on design, color, 作文, 与自然.

Students can develop these skills in a range of mediums, 从图, 绘画, and design to sculpture, 版画, 纤维艺术, and paper-making. Art appreciation, art history, and aesthetics are incorporated into each grade level. Students study celebrated artists in their historical context. Hands-on creation, 示威活动, 讲座, 故事, 讨论, and guest artists are a regular part of the classroom experience.

The visual arts program culminates in a vibrant and multi-faceted experience for 上学校 students. Goals of the 上学校 art program include understanding the basic principles of color and design; creating works in two and three dimensions; using excellent craftsmanship and technique; critiquing artwork using appropriate vocabulary; and understanding the importance of recognizing artists from a range of cultural backgrounds and historical periods.
