  • Art is Not an "Extra" at MVCDS

    An Integral Component of Education
An appreciation for the visual arts begins early at Maumee Valley. The art experience becomes more extensive in the 较低的学校 with the 学生 participating in drawing, 绘画, 设计, 雕塑, 版画, 纤维艺术, and paper-making. Art appreciation, art history, and aesthetics are incorporated into each grade level. Students study celebrated artists in their historical context. Hands-on creation, demonstrations, 讲座, 故事, 讨论, and guest artists are a regular part of the classroom experience.

Middle School 学生 delve into a full trimester of daily art instruction each school year. They explore formal elements of art and begin exploring increasingly more sophisticated concepts and wider varieties of media. Problem-solving skills are honed, and the use of art as a means of communication is emphasized.

The 视觉艺术 program culminates in a vibrant and multi-faceted experience for 上学校 学生. Goals of the 上学校 art program include:
  • understanding the basic principles of color and 设计
  • creating successful works in both two and three dimensions
  • using excellent craftsmanship and technique
  • critiquing artwork using appropriate vocabulary
  • understanding various periods of art history and how they connect to the student's past and future
  • understanding the importance of recognizing artists from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and different genders
Some examples of 上学校 art courses are Digital Arts Multimedia Production, History of Painting, Digital Photo, Advanced Color & Design, Advanced Placement 2D Design, Advanced Placement 3D Design, 2D Painting & Drawing I/II/III, 3D Modeling, and Sculpture & 陶瓷.
美术 have been at the core of an MVCDS education since the school's founding in 1884. Providing unparalleled opportunities for individual self-expression and creativity, the 美术 curriculum recognizes and nurtures the unique "voice" within every child. At Maumee Valley, 学生 are immersed in the arts through experience.
