Mr. Mike Murro
Hello students and parents, and welcome to my web page! My name is Michael Murro and I teach Studio Art 6, 7, and 8 at Chestnut Ridge and Bunker Hill Middle Schools. Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!
Throughout this course, students will learn the importance of the use of 7 key art elements- line, shape, form, space, texture, value, and color. We will work with both 2D and 3D media, and get to know a wide variety of materials and technology that will broaden our horizons in not only the fundamentals of the arts, but in our individual creativity as well. Students will also learn presentation skills while participating in class critiques, as well as explore art history, cultural significance in the arts, and opportunities available in regards to careers in the art field.
