Secondary Visual Arts - Grades 7
Core Standards of the Course
Strand: CREATE (7-8.V.CR.)
Students will generate artistic work by conceptualizing, organizing, and completing their artistic ideas. They will refine original work through persistence, reflection, and evaluation (Standards 7-8.V.CR.1-11).
Demonstrate awareness of ethical responsibility to oneself and others when posting and sharing images and other materials through the Internet, social media, and other communication formats.
Reflect on and explain important information about personal artwork in an artist statement or another format, and apply relevant criteria to examine, reflect on, and plan revisions for a work of art or design in progress.
Strand: PRESENT (7-8.V.P.)
Students will analyze, interpret, refine and select artistic work for presentation. They will convey meaning in the manner in which the art is presented (Standards 7-8.V.P.1-4).
Develop skills and concepts to refine artistic work for presentation by analyzing and evaluating methods for preparing and presenting art based on criteria, by collaboratively preparing and presenting selected theme-based artwork for display, and by formulating exhibition narratives for the viewer.
Express meaning through the presentation of artistic work by comparing and contrasting, viewing, and experiencing collections and exhibitions in different venues, actual and virtual; and by analyzing why and how an exhibition or collection may influence ideas, beliefs, and experiences.
Interpret intent and meaning in artistic work and process by analyzing how the interaction of subject matter, characteristics of form and structure, use of media, art-making approaches, and relevant contextual information contribute to understanding messages, ideas, or mood conveyed.
Apply criteria to evaluate artistic work and process by comparing and explaining the difference between an evaluation of an artwork based on personal criteria and an evaluation of an artwork based on a set of established criteria, and by creating a convincing and logical argument to support an evaluation of art.
