Art education helps improve decision making skills, boosts self-confidence and helps students feel community. It makes young people more self-assured, as they learn about what appeals to them, and they directly influence how their final product will look.
In this class, we will learn about and create art! We will study different artists, styles, and mediums. We will learn some art history, color theory, drawing, perspective, and composition.
Some art and lessons will be guided, but at times the students will be given the freedom and opportunity to explore their own creativity and individual style.
We will use different art mediums, including (but not limited to) pencil, acrylic paints, watercolor paints, and clay.
We will have 1 to 2 art shows during the year to showcase their hard work and creativity!!
This class will earn 1 Fine Arts Credit for the High School Transcript.
There is no homework for this class, but students on occasion will be asked to research subject matter for certain projects.
Each student will need a portfolio to keep their artwork safe. This will be kept in the classroom and sent home with your student at the end of the year with their artwork. (See link)
Each student will need to provide a pad of art paper for class… these are the links to the specific ones recommended. (Again these will be kept in the classroom for class use)
Brushes, paint and other materials will be provided in the classroom.
This class is meant for mature, artistic kids interested in art.
