The Moundsville Middle School Art Program

Of all the programs at Moundsville Middle School, very few are getting the attention of staff, students, and parents like the art program. Headed by Mrs. Van Scyoc, the art program has continued to be something not just to brag about, but something that you have to see to believe. 

Students are learning to do everything from the classics we all know such as painting and drawing to even more interactive and expressive activities such as sculpting and pottery.

Whether the students are working with paint or paper, the art students of Moundsville Middle School are learning to appreciate the finer things in life and think in new, expansive ways.
