The Reagan Educational Center Art program offers a variety of classes for students at all levels. For seventh grade beginners, the one-semester class provides a solid introductory background, and gives students the opportunity to learn such skills as drawing in linear perspective and to investigate basic color theory, as well as to create projects based on various schools of art. Following the semester class, a year-long advanced class provides eighth graders the chance to build on what they already have learned, and explore more complex art projects, including printmaking and sculpture, as well as more advanced color theory.
In Ceramics, students get the opportunity to create 3-dimensional sculpture using clay, often finishing these sculptures with glazing and painting techniques. Ceramics 1 gives students a foundation of clay building skills and techniques such as pinch method, slab building, coil method, as well as many other techniques. Some of the projects students can look forward to making in Ceramics 1 are pinch pots, whistles, slab boxes, picture frames, coil pots, masks, animal sculptures plus many more.
