8th Grade is super exciting this year as we are testing out our new digital media component to our curriculum! 8th Graders will be working in a mixed media fashion this year, they will have the opportunity to play around with both digital media as well as hands on art making. We have also begun a more "open studio" feel to the program where we open the doors to our adjoining art studios and work together as an art department. This allows students to get to know all the art teachers instead of just their assigned teacher. It also provides students with the opportunity to receive inspiration and feedback from a more diverse group! Students will be creating "mindscapes" (a landscape of their mind) through the use of digital photography, adobe photoshop, and mixed media processes like photo transfer as well as using traditional art media such as painting, pen and ink, assemblage, and more!
