Visual Arts

Each teacher will focus on a different discipline of art (drawing and painting, sculpture and ceramics, and printmaking) for one marking period.

Carmen Arace Intermediate School offers a variety of art mediums that range from drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, computer graphics, and collage/mixed media. The elements of art and principles of design are emphasized into each lesson. It is our belief that if students choose relevant subject matter, they will be more interested and invested in the final product. We encourage the students to open their minds to a world of imagination and creativity. This creativity expands beyond the single brush stroke of the page to vibrant young minds.

General Music

General Music at Carmen Arace offers each student a chance to learn music through a variety of different platforms such as guitar, keyboard, music technology, and percussion instruments. Students will study the genres twentieth century music such as folk, blues, early rock n roll, and reggae.

Music is a large part of the development of our students’ academic development. Students with a positive attitude and a strong work ethic can achieve an appreciation for music as well as a greatness within themselves.

Fantastic Festivals

Every year the Chorus participates in a Fantastic Festivals Music Festival. We usually participate sometime in the end of May or beginning of June. This well-established festival serves as a valuable assessment for the students as well as the conductor. This is first and foremost an educational experience. We have done quite well in years past and are excited about this year’s festival.
