8th Grade Exit Project

8th Grade Exit Project

What is it?

  • The 8th grade exit project is a culmination of your years at Watsonville Charter School of the Arts. You must present & write, on a topic of your choice, using an art/literature ‘genre’ (a particular type or category of literature or art, i.e. dance, visual/dramatic/performance art, poetry/fiction, a monologue, short film/documentary, etc…) that has inspired you through the years. Choose a topic that you are interested about and you have a strong passion for.

What’s Included?

  • There are 3 components to the 8th Grade Exit Project

 

1. Written/Spoken or Video about:  

  • your experience at WCSA
  • Why you chose the specific genre & what inspired you to choose this genre?
  • Who’s helped you with this project/which mentor did you choose and why?
  • Discuss the span of how art has lead you through WCSA and where you are going to take it into the future
  • A 2 page essay including your experience, your genre, your inspirations, your mentors, and your future aspirations.

 

 

2. A presentation of your ‘Masterpiece.’ You will either perform your ‘art’ piece, or display/show your art with commentary about your choice, i.e. what it is, why you chose it, what does it represent, how does it represent you, etc…

 

3. A transcript of your interview (Q & A) with your WCSA mentor.

 

Tips for the project.

  • have a clear and achievable goal
  • allow you to express a truly personal message
  • be the result of your initiative, creativity, and ability to organize and plan
  • reflect your special interests, hobbies, special abilities, or concerns about particular issues
  • deal with a topic or area to which you are committed
  • be entirely your own work—authenticity is very important and you will be required to sign a document stating that the project is your own work
