IB MYP Art 7-8
Course Level: MYP Levels 1 & 2
Course Length: 7th grade-1 semester
8th grade-2 semesters
This is a course designed to introduce students to the IB MYP Visual Arts program, which lays the groundwork for developing a personal project in 10th grade while providing valuable preparation for the DP Visual Arts course for juniors and seniors. Aspiring artists will become familiar with the Elements of Art ( line, shape, form, color, value, texture, space) and the Principles of Design (emphasis, balance, movement, rhythm, proportion, contrast, pattern) as they explore a variety of artists and art movements. Various 2-D and 3-D media and techniques will be introduced and incorporated into projects. Art vocabulary, art history, and art criticism will help reinforce the basic concepts.
