Aptos Middle School | Perspectives in Line and Space

Founded in 1931, Aptos Middle School is a public middle school located in the Mount Davidson Manor neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The school serves approximately one thousand students who hail from a diverse range of backgrounds and zip codes. Nearly half of the school’s enrollment is represented by elementary feeder schools Jose Ortega, Starr King, Commodore Sloat, Dianne Feinstein, and George Washington Carver. Aptos’ core mission is to provide each and every student with the quality instruction and equitable support required to thrive in the 21st  century.

Aptos Middle School’s holistic approach to education is rooted in the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’ Architecture of Accomplished Teaching and Five Core Propositions. This approach has transformed the school’s capacity to address its students’ unique strengths, interests, and needs throughout all academic disciplines. Arts education has been a cornerstone of the Aptos teaching and learning experience for decades, providing a pathway for students to discover a sense of purpose and become meaningful contributors to global society.

Perspectives in Line and Space features works made by student artists from the seventh and eighth grades. Students used their understanding of perspective drawing and shading techniques to produce a range of works, including landscapes, still lifes and, portraits.
