Expressive Arts at Boyce Middle SchoolIn addition to the academic team, each student spends one and a half hours a week with a member of the Expressive Arts team which includes art, music, family and consumer science, and technology education.
The Expressive Arts curriculum enhances the students' learning experience by incorporating practical, fine and performing arts skills into one program. The program blends the subject content of each course and requires student involvement in the form of product and personal performance. Class size is approximately 14 to 1. Students will participate in a nine-week unit in each of the following areas:
Students in Art work with a variety of media in both the fifth and sixth grade levels. Projects in the fifth level are geared towards enabling the student to experience a variety of techniques/skills, while sixth level students are given the opportunity to explore the media/skills in more depth. Activities include two-dimensional and three-dimensional projects in drawing, painting, fiber arts, design, and ceramics. The goal of the Art program is to enable students to explore different types of media and to spark a lifelong interest in Art.
