Students will study the elements of 2-D art through demonstration, application, and short lecture. Students will use a variety of materials including but not limited to: graphite, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and ink. Students will be assigned projects in each media to explore and understand concepts in art making such as design, composition, technique, accurate rendering, value and shading, and color theory.
Students will also be introduced to art history and contemporary art through discussion of artists and example images, recommeneded gallery exhibitions, recommended videos and books. (This page will be updated with a list of the recommendations.)
