• Welcome to Art 2020-2021! 

    Intro to Art

    Welcome to Art Class! This year students will begin an exploration of the structural elements of art used when creating 2-D and 3-D forms. Additive and subtractive processes are used to manipulate and construct 3-D forms. Student artists examine the effects of attention to detail, size, position, overlapping, visual pattern, and texture, and these considerations will be reflected in the surface and structural qualities of completed art forms.

    Student artists reflect on their own artwork and that of others through critical analysis to achieve artistic goals related to craftsmanship, technique, and application of 21st-century skills. Opportunities will be provided for creative decision-making in the context of the structural elements of art and the organizational principles of design. This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials. Through the arts critical thinking skills help students become creative and innovative learners. Study skills and organization will be stressed. 

    Drawing I

    Students experiment with the media and techniques used to create a variety of two-dimensional (2-D) artworks through the development of skills in drawing. Students practice, sketch, and manipulate the structural elements of art to improve mark making and/or the organizational principles of design in a composition from observation, research, and/or imagination. Through the critique process, students evaluate and respond to their own work and that of their peers. This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials.
