Exploration of techniques in drawing, image-making, collage, sculpture, and painting combined with the creative process makes this the perfect follow-up to Visual Art 9 or an introduction to the Visual Arts.
This course emphasizes being able to see as an artist while exploring various materials. Projects may include drawing, painting, clay, collage, printmaking, and copper work. The student will learn about art history through an artist study and participate in art critiques. Students are required to purchase a 9 x 12 sketchbook, drawing pencils, metal sharpener, erasers, and paintbrushes, including a fine detail brush.
This course is based on the drawing systems studied in Arts Ed 9 with an emphasis on continuing drawing. Students will continue to develop self-expression and technical skills through a variety of media including pencil, conte, and paint.
