Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. - Scott Adams
Drawing and Painting 1
Drawing 1 is designed to instill a strong basic vocabulary of techniques, terms, and materials. Line, value, perspective, and form are explored through observational drawings and in the first half of the course a wide variety of dry art media are explored. The emphasis of this course is to build skill competency while promoting individual growth and creativity.
Painting 1 gives students an introduction to painting materials and techniques. From mixing paints to applying brush strokes and brush care students will learn the essential skills necessary to paint while exploring art styles, cultures, and historical movements.
I have high expectations for excellence in this course;therefore, the work that students create must consistently represent their best effort in the pursuit of improving their current level of ability.
All work will be assessed using rubrics designed with objective criteria and expectations.
