Art Class is designed to introduce students to art techniques, media, and art history. We will learn concepts relating to the elements and principles of art and basic procedures needed in the production of a variety of types of art. The year will start with the basics of line and contour drawing in order for students to use those skills learned in projects such as one point perspective, the shading of objects to create a still life, and end the semester on learning the structure of the face to create a self portrait.
Second semester, students will also learn how to create three dimensional work by learning basket weaving techniques and paper mache. Students will end the semester learning about water color techniques to create a landscape, and use paint to learn about color theory. Art Class is a fun introductory class that introduces students to different ways to create art!
