This foundational course builds on the educational outcomes of visual arts in middle school. It prepares students for
personal development in the arts, including the construction of a body of work that may be instrumental in gaining
admission to higher education. It offers experiences utilizing the elements of art and the principles of design in the
production of art products such as drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, and ceramics. We will stress proper use
of equipment and vocabulary and technical terms. The course includes a cultural and historical study of master art
works of different periods and styles. Students will produce a portfolio of art works that will document and reflect
their visual explorations and they will utilize a variety of 2D and 3D media and techniques when creating. Students
will be responsible for required readings, homework, journaling of ideas, participating in critiques, and reflecting on
their work.
