The Middle School Visual Art Program offers students the opportunity to explore a variety of methods and materials through hands-on projects. The focus is on the development of creative problem solving and technical skills. Students discuss the Elements and Principles of Design and learn how to implement them to create successful projects. They will experience two-dimensional and three-dimensional design problems and learn from artists past and present. The steps of the design process are an important part of developing students creative thinking skills. Throughout the program, students will practice these steps to guide them in the development of independent ideas.
The Performing Arts Curriculum at Bay View gives students the opportunity to share their talents with others through performance mediums in the areas of Choral, Theatre, Technical Theatre, Dance and Orchestra. Students learn the importance of interacting with one another through the on-going study of the craft for creative expression.
Middle School Orchestra, Junior Chamber, the fall musical production, and the spring “Cabaret” production, allow students of all ages to perform as soloists and members of an ensemble. Additionally, Bay View’s Annex serves as a professional quality scene and costume shop where students are able to design, create and build through our Technical Theatre Program. These programs are supported by a rich curriculum that spans from Piano Keyboard and Music Theory to Theatre and Choral.
