At Grove School, we hope that creativity is a part of our campus’ culture and one of our goals is for art to be everywhere. In addition to sculptures that can be found throughout the campus, the school also offers students the opportunity to take a range of electives in the Fine Arts.
Students can also participate in after-school clubs that are geared towards painting, photography, and other artistic activities. And in addition to the school’s annual Evening of the Arts, the school presents Art Fairs for the entire community to attend, in which the work of students is showcased and on display. We want all of our students to explore the arts – for some, this can be a creative outlet, and for others it can be essential therapy. Our Arts program is proud to present students with so many options.
Grades: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
The goal of this course is to enhance the student’s learning and understanding of basic and intermediate drawing and 2D processes and techniques. Learning will occur through projects, research, museum visits, and collaborative work. This class will be divided into two sections based on student interest and ability. Those students interested and able to demonstrate ability through preemptive assessment will be granted the privilege of joining the Advanced Drawing class. Potential Projects and Units of Study include: Grid drawings, drawing from Life (Still Life and Human Figure), Perspective (1 point and 2 point), Printmaking, Sumi Drawing, Value, and Landscapes.
