Explore the art of other cultures ...|
Welcome to the
James Logan High School
Diversity is our strength ... unity is our goal.
Our motto holds true for the students enrolled in the Multicultural Art class.
In the class, we explore the cultural foundation of and art techniques used in
several cultures reflected in the school's community. It is our hope that through
the greater understanding of others we will contribute to the creation of a
culturally compassionate population of young adults.
During this one-year course of study our 9th through 12th graders are exposed,
however briefly, to one or two traditional art forms from several cultures
around the world. With a basic understanding of the original intent of the
regional/tribal art, students go on to create their own interpretation of those
themes. Students enjoy the variety and challenge of working in printmaking
(linoleum and silkscreen), with clay, light metals (copper and aluminum),
textiles, tempera and acrylic paint, beads, and various paper crafts. Students
incorporate their own life experiences and personal preferences with the variety
of materials provided to create a unique and varied art collection, many of
which have won outstanding awards at the Alameda County Fair.
THIS IS AN INTERESTING, FUN CLASS!
