As a proud part of the new Fine Arts Department at Newberry Academy, Studio 211 immerses students in the fascinating world of the Visual Arts. Young artists in preschool through the eighth grade are introduced to the artistic styles and artworks of the masters, arts of different cultures, the creative process and a plethora of ways that we can “color outside the lines”. Together we will discover our inner artists through the completion of projects in multiple medias, including drawing, painting, three dimensional design, ceramics and mixed media. Continuing throughout the school year, young artists-in-training explore the different elements of art: color, tone (value), form, texture, shape, space, size (proportion) and line.
Our music program here at Newberry services all students in grades Pre-K through 8th, and covers a wide range of topics/activities. Students learn music appreciation through song, movement, performing on instruments, music notation and video. While primary grades focus more on singing, notation and movement activities, intermediate/upper grades focus more on integrating notation and current musical trends into classroom-based performances.
