About the Course

Thank you for your interest in Art at Covington Middle School Fine Arts Acadmy. This page will give you a brief overview of what students will experience in this course.  

Covington’s Art program is diverse and relevant.  Every student can be successful in our class as we work together to create a positive learning environment.  An art class helps  students  build real-life skills for  success.  Students learn how to work together as part of a team, evaluate their own work, constantly improve it, and build higher level problem-solving skills as they create art.  In class we work with numerous mediums (drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture).  We learn about artists and styles of art from throughout history.  Moreover, we explore students’ unique individuality through projects that reflect their imagination, ideas, and talents.  Every student has something positive to contribute as we experience art!
