Art History at Blackhawk

This year, a new class is being offered through both the Social Studies and Fine Arts department. The class combines World History with Art and Architecture. The first half of this two-period class is taught by Mr. Hyde, then all of the students in the class walk across the hall to participate in the art portion with Mrs. Smith.  Here they study the artwork of history and get a chance to use it as inspiration for their own creative projects. The class has been a hit and the students have enjoyed the cross curricular connections they have seen so far.
