Welcome to Art!
Our program at Smart's Mill Middle School follows the LCPS art curriculum and can be found in its complete form at www.loudoun.k12.va.us .
Art in the 6th grade encourages each student to explore new ideas and processes as they solve creative problems. Opportunities are given to experiment with and learn about the properties of clay, printmaking, drawing, computer graphics, paints, textiles, metal, photography, mixed media and a variety of other materials. Students use these tools to express themselves creatively and at the same time become more aware of the importance of the principles of design. Lessons are reinforced and enriched by looking at and analyzing works by artists who have made important contributions throughout history.
