7th/8th Grade Drawing


Do you like to draw and doodle? If so, this class is for you! The emphasis in this course is training the hand and eye to create realistic, representational drawings. Students will be required to think critically, analyze shape and form and problem solve in creative ways. We use a variety of materials such as charcoal, chalks, colored pastels, graphite pencils of different weights and a variety of blending tools. Come ready to learn and grow as an artist!


We alternate our curriculum every other year so students have to opportunity to take Drawing as a 7th grader and an 8th grader without repeating the same projects.

The projects Year 1:

  • Charcoal portrait
  • Printmaking
  • Scratch board

The projects Year 2:

  • Charcoal/chalk pastel portrait
  • Collaborative Portrait
  • Mandala Designs
  • Henri Matisse Collage
