With more than 40 art classes to choose from, DCD Middle School students can hone their craft or discover new ones. Young artists can work with clay, watercolors, digital photography, drawing, sculpting, movie making, animation, and set design. Middle school students take three arts courses a term, with nine total for the year. While there are some requirements to ensure exposure and balance among the four disciplines of woodworking, visual arts, drama, and music, students choose courses based on their interests. With the exception of grade-specific requirements, middle school art classes are cross-grade offerings allowing students to connect and learn from each other.
