At Kennedy, students will have fun and engaging hands-on learning experiences in various media. We have something for all students to enjoy and help each student discover the joy of learning as they follow their passion. We are proud to offer an art program so good middle school students will come home happy to talk about their day. Students explore digital and traditional media as they create 2D, 3D, and 4D art. Students will gain insight into contemporary and historical art perspectives through our class discussions and rich supplemental resources including podcasts developed by D203 staff. Focusing on the stories behind the works that make-up art history helps students understand the ideas that shape their learning experiences. Students will apply those connections and practice their skills by creating a number of projects including but not limited to: drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, mixed media, pottery, and sculpture. Sketchbooks are recommended to encourage skills through practice. Art class at Kennedy Junior High will provide student experiences to help increase students’ pride in themselves and their place within the community.
