DRAWING & PAINTING I
During this secondary level course students will build on the skills acquired in Art I through more intensive projects in both wet and dry media. The class will examine historic and cultural traditions of these art forms and investigate various materials, styles and techniques. Projects will include figure drawing, self-portraits and still life then progress to realism, landscape painting and abstraction. An emphasis will be placed on student observation, color theory and color mixing as well as an expanded arts vocabulary through regular class critique.
