The Big Idea:
Art Can be Universal
Running completely in opposition (and yet harmoniously?!?) with the 7th grade theme of art being personal, the 8th graders will explore the BIG Idea of universal themes, that is, artistic themes and threads that transcend the artist, style, or media. These themes would and should have importance to people all over the world and throughout time. These ideas will include; love, peace, happiness, emotion, passage of time, and pure aesthetic design.
