Skip Navigation LinksHome > Middle School > Departments > Art
Art is part of an elective cycle that prepares students for
advancement into high school through the development of
higher-order thinking skills and problem-solving. Each
marking period is a "mini-semester" incorporating a variety of
art media and techniques such as: ceramics, sculpture, drawing,
painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional design. The
introduction to each of these forms of media includes the basic
historical and cultural background that enables students to gain
a true appreciation of every art form.
Through their works of art, students will
understand the three main parts found in every work of art:
the subject, the form and the content. The Art Department
of SRMS believes that art is a very personal experience and
expects students to put their best efforts into their work.
Students are required to reflect upon their achievements and
areas in need of improvement.
We at SRMS believe that
all students can achieve success in the area of visual arts and
gain creative knowledge to assist them in attaining future
