Students will produce artwork in two and three dimensional forms. Students will become familiar with drawing tools and techniques, art history, color theory, painting, portraiture, collage, and either painting and/or sculpture. The focus is on the Elements of Art, as well as The Principles of Design. Each project will be planned in the sketchbook.
Grades will be determined by daily work and finished projects. Each project requires planning and preparation in the sketchbook, which is worth 20% of the final grade. This includes “Do Now” work, art vocabulary, plans, sketches, and homework. Exit passes/quizzes will be given at the end of a project. Final projects are 80% of the grade.
