Bowie Middle School’s art program focuses on four disciplines of art: 1) Art Production, 2) Art History, 3) Art Appreciation, and 4) Art Criticism. The art students will explore a variety of media to create drawings, paintings, sculptures, printmaking, and photography. Students will obtain a basic understanding of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. Through hands –on activities, art museum tours, class discussions, and research learners will develop the ability to manipulate, understand, and critique a variety of art mediums. Students will have the opportunity to compete in various art competitions throughout the year.
