Drawing, painting and 3D art work
Students develop their visual art skills through a variety of art experiences with emphasis upon technique, expression, and historical and multicultural influences. Art concepts and techniques covered in class include: drawing, portraits, figures, landscape, light, texture, the color wheel, clay, painting, and collage. In order to help students overcome stereotypical visual concepts, they are encouraged to find ways to vary their interpretations of subject and theme. Increasing attention is given to the expressive use of design elements: line, color, space, shape, texture, form, and principles: balance, rhythm, unity, variety and perspective. Personal self-expression continues to be the primary function of art for students.
