Welcome to the Johnson-Williams Middle School Art Room!
At Johnson-Williams, Art is part of a 3-class (trimester) exploratory including Tech Ed and Spectrum. Students will have 12 weeks of each class. Each grade level will study major movements in art history, including Renaissance and Impressionism through Modern and Contemporary. Art techniques related to contour drawing, principles of landscapes, drawing 3D shapes, portrait drawing, creating art using perspective, grid enlargement, and the elements and principles of design will be explored. A large focus is learning how to let go and “go big” with their art. Students will use a variety of art media including, but not limited to, oil and chalk pastels, watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, ceramic or polymer clay, computer design, and other mixed media techniques.
