The Middle School art curriculum combines the 21st Century Skills with the philosophies of Teaching for Artistic Behaviors, The Harkness Method and Project-based Art Education. Students are gathered within a group setting where discussions, communicating ideas and collaboration can take place. The students are free to access art centers located in the four classrooms and are able to move and create at their own free will. Below you will see some examples of lessons that I have used within my curriculum.
