This class serves as an introduction to higher level art concepts and the "ABC's" of art. Throughout the quarter, students will be guided to learn a variety of basic two dimensional and some three dimensional concepts and art techniques.

Art elements and design principles will be covered and a basic understanding of how to create art, how to view art and art in a historical context will be gained.

Students will learn about each of the 7 elements and 7 principles of design in their workbook by taking notes and completing an activity for each. Students will complete one sketchbook assignment each week that correlates with what they are learning in class to expand their knowledge.Students will create two to three art projects where each highlights the elements and principles of art they are currently learning about. 

Goal of this class is to gain confidence when creating art & their skills in art and use this knowledge in upper level art courses!
