Foundations of Art

Elective: for  Grades 9-11

 

Foundations of Art introduces the beginning art student to the basic elements and principles of art and design. Technical skills in both 2D and 3D will be developed through a variety of art making processes that will include drawing, painting, sculpture and art historical research. Every project will be evaluated in groups where students learn how to formally and conceptually analyze works of art. Media and methods could include but are not limited to watercolor, charcoal, pastel, acrylic painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Students will learn a vocabulary of common art terms and be able to use them to aid our understanding of art and its uses. A workbook of ideas, research, and the development of the student’s work will be maintained throughout the year.
