Ms. Pearlmutter, Bell’s art teacher extraordinaire, offers an art history class to the seventh and eighth grade students. In the seventh grade, the course begins with Neolithic art and ends with Post-Impressionism. The course continues in eighth grade with 20th Century through contemporary art. Students research and are inspired by artwork from different art movements and synthesizes the knowledge to tell a new story in their own work. This is an optional class taken before or after school. The primary resource for ideas, concepts and exposure is the partnership between the non-profit ART21 & PBS.
