Students rotate through drama, music, three-dimensional, and two-dimensional art in quarterly cycles, each class meeting four times per week.
Three-Dimensional Art: Our focus is sculpture and creative expression. The first two quarters will explore wire, cardboard, and plaster, while the last two quarters concentrate on clay. Students express their ideas through specific projects while also gaining understanding of the unique properties of the materials. Specifically, students will learn about the language of art to express ideas and participate in class critiques.

戏剧： 7th Grade 戏剧 is an introduction to theatre performance. Classes focus on improvisation that will help students trust and access their creative instincts on the stage. Students create scenes and characters based on their own experiences and discuss the ways in which art relates to everyday life. Emphasis is given to learning to be supportive members of a creative group, on understanding compassion as an essential acting tool, and on the role of 剧院 in the community, past and present. The quarter culminates in a performance for the 7th grade class.
音乐： General music in the 7th grade is a skill building class that also develops prerequisite skills for 8th grade electives. Students work towards proficiency in musical notation through the study of rhythmic values and use of treble and bass clefs. These skills are reinforced by using percussion instruments and singing in class. Each class will perform at least once during the school year. Topics include basic music theory and musicianship skills, score reading, ear training, form and analysis, and basic compositional practices.
