Explore the art of other cultures ...
      Welcome to the

James Logan High School
Multicultural Art
Web Site

Diversity is our strength ... unity is our goal.

Our motto holds true for the students enrolled in the Multicultural Art class. In the class, we explore the cultural foundation of and art techniques used in several cultures reflected in the school's community. It is our hope that through the greater understanding of others we will contribute to the creation of a culturally compassionate population of young adults.

During this one-year course of study our 9th through 12th graders are exposed, however briefly, to one or two traditional art forms from several cultures around the world. With a basic understanding of the original intent of the regional/tribal art, students go on to create their own interpretation of those themes. Students enjoy the variety and challenge of working in printmaking (linoleum and silkscreen), with clay, light metals (copper and aluminum), textiles, tempera and acrylic paint, beads, and various paper crafts. Students incorporate their own life experiences and personal preferences with the variety of materials provided to create a unique and varied art collection, many of which have won outstanding awards at the Alameda County Fair.
