6th Grade Art


The sixth grade art program at Dakota Hills Middle School focuses on a wide variety of experiences, methods, and techniques-everything from painting to clay sculpture. The assignments are based on the elements of design and provide students with opportunities to learn relevant concepts, build skills and develop an appreciation of art. Students are encouraged to approach “design problems” by experimenting with a number of creative solutions so that the end results reflect their efforts. It is most important however that students learn to enjoy art and us it as a format of self expression. To be successful, come with a positive attitude and an open mind about art, be prepared to participate in class and to show effort and improvement in your artworks.

The projects:

  • Pacific Northwest Native American masks
  • Mythical Creature Paintings
  • Colored Pencil Birds
  • Watercolor Bugs/Insects
