Visual Arts

As part of the STEAM curriculum, Visual Arts provides students with planned, success-oriented art experiences using a variety of materials and techniques. Students will produce artwork in two and three-dimensional forms, and become familiar with drawing tools, techniques, art history, color theory, painting, printmaking, collage, and either papier mache or clay. The students will study each element (line, shape, value, texture, color, space and form) of art as a unit.  Several formative assignments, in addition to a larger project, are given for each unit.  Students will think about, talk about, and make judgment on works of art, including their own.  This analysis gives students a strong foundation in the critiquing process and constructive criticism, skills that are essential to the 21st century workplace.
