Visual and Performing Arts
The visual and performing arts program at Corinth offers students a wide variety of opportunities to develop their unique talents and learn about artistic expression.
Middle School Art
Seventh and 8th graders test into the gifted art program, a total of 32 students. They learn the seven elements of art and seven principles of design while also studying artists. Some projects include Walter Anderson-inspired linoleum block prints, Chuck-Close inspired self-portraits, and Georgia O'Keeffe inspired pastel flowers.
Middle School Band
The middle school band is open to students in grades 6-8. Instruments include flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and percussion.
6th Grade Beginning Band is an introduction on learning how to play instruments, while applying basic music theory, and music history concepts through a method book and beginning band concert literature.
7th and 8th Grade Band reviews and expands knowledge of music theory, music history, and technique on instruments by preparing to perform on a high school level.
The middle school band performs at selected middle school football games, middle school pep rallies, the Christmas parade, the Christmas concert, selected band clinics, the Spring Festival Ratings, and the spring concert. The 7th and 8th grade band participates in a Spring Band Festival for ratings each year. This year the middle school band received superior ratings (the highest rating) at the ICC Band Festival.
