This comprehensive in-depth course has a primary emphasis on exploration of the elements and principles of art. With a focus on various media (such as pencils, acrylic paint, clay, colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, watercolors, and clay) studies will include 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional art works. Students are given the opportunity to explore and create meaningful works, as well as development of their creative problem-solving skills. Students will create abstract and realistic art works while exploring a variety of techniques for defining space. While continuing to develop technical skills, students will also begin to understand how to develop their own personal voice in their work of art.
