Junior High ART

About Junior High Art

Junior High Art focuses in on Western art from Greek and Roman up to Realism. Because of the focus on early Western art, projects are focused on life-like precision, creating short term and extended projects that teach them measuring techniques and tools to create accurate portraits, landscapes, and thoughtful compositions. Students get the chance to use photography, charcoal, oil paint, and acrylic paint as they work through different eras of Western art history.

Mrs. Campion

Mrs. Clare Campion is our fabulous art teacher. She hails from England and attended school at Stoke on Trent 6th form College, then to Stoke on Trent college for her BTEC in early childhood education. She is a self-taught artist and has done many murals and commissioned art around San Diego, from schools and restaurants to private homes. She has worked in early childhood education for about 30 years. Mrs. Campion has been an artist for 25 years and I has taught art through private art classes for about 15 years. Her favorite part in teaching is  observing students grow and watching them face and overcome challenges. We are so grateful to have Mrs. Campion at CMCS!
