High School Art 1

9th-12th Grade​

 

Students will expand upon the knowledge and skill developed in the elementary school art program.  Emphasis will be on the basic elements and principles of art.  The works created will be primarily two-dimensional in the areas of drawing, possibly painting, and/or collage.  Students will extend artistic, creative, and critical thinking skills through specific experiences by creating, discussions, and reflecting upon personal works of art and the works of others.
