Madison Central Visual Arts
This is a very exciting time to be a Madison Central School Art student! The new classrooms are completed and we are starting to settle in. Madison is at the fore front of technology in the art room! New 3D printers are arriving and the school districts first virtual reality paint application, the Tilt Brush, has arrived as well. The advances in technology this year in the classroom will give students new and exciting introductions to cultures and art movements from around the world, from primitive to modern art. While exploring cultural developments of civilizations throughout history, students will begin to engage and understand why and how art is created and used to express oneself. Videos and virtual field trips to museums from around the world are just a couple of examples new technology we will be engaging students with this year. The large screen touch screens make VR field trips accessable for all of or students. It is wonderful to watch students combine traditional and fundamental art skills such as painting, drawing, ceramics, and pen and ink engage with computer graphics, 3D design/ printing, digital photography and now virtual reality installations come to life. Please stay tuned for pictures of the new rooms and student work.
Engage students with project based authentic learning utilizing critical thinking, problem solving skills, creating life long learners.
