The youngest grade I teach art to at DMS. They are new to the routine of middle school, yet this group still gets so excited in art class that I continually remind them to quiet down. Here they are working on a drawing of a "Secret City" of their creation. Secret City revolves around the vocabulary of: forshortening, shadows, surface, contour lines, size, density and overlapping to "build" their drawings. Here is my current group of 6th graders at work.
