Art - Grades 6-12
Students will CREATE, CONNECT, PRESENT AND RESPOND TO their own visual artwork independently and collaboratively. Students will learn to express themselves and show understanding of a variety of art techniques. They will complete self-assessments and reflections about personal artwork as well as others' work. Students will also engage in class critiques (written and oral).
Elective options are currently open for high school students. The current structure of high school classes require students to be in Art classes with grade level peers until 10th grade. Juniors and seniors can choose to take elective classes (Advanced Art & Art Elective).
Student Competitions and Student Showcase
Students can participate in various statewide/nationwide competitions. OSSU Art programs recently met with Superintendent Baker to put together a showcase of student work at the Highland Center of Arts in April of 2023, so stay tuned!
What do Art Classes Mean to Craftsbury students?
“Art allowed our class to have a certain level of freedom that others don’t even come close to. I have become a more thankful, patient, and creative person because of Art. This class is what brings me into school in the morning and I will never forget the happy memories I have made here. Art is a student catered class where we can refine our skills. I am thankful for this exciting, jovial class.
