At SBMS we are having an art gallery.  Our goal is to have a piece of art from every Pre AP student hanging in the gallery. The gallery will be open to the public and to our students and parents.  We are working with the 6th grade Language Arts teachers to provide a Cross Curriculum lesson. 6th grade students will attend the gallery with a Critical Analysis check sheet.  The 6th grade students will pick a piece of artwork to analyze.  6th grade students will then go back to their rooms and write about the piece of art they choose to analyze.
