The purpose of this class is to maximize and maintain your child’s art interest as they develop a higher level of skills and knowledge. This class will also enable each student to begin building their portfolio.
Art 1 is the foundation class of our overall four-year curriculum. Your Art 1 student will complete classes of monochromatic work, developing an increased understanding of line, value, and texture. Projects will include ebony pencil from photomontage, charcoal still life, India ink design, and scratchboard art.
Several weeks into the next session, students will study color theory in-depth. They will utilize this knowledge to succeed in color design projects that will ensue. Art 1 also includes work in hand building with clay.
