Visual Arts 1
Visual Arts students explore the emotional and expressive qualities in art to access the imagination and broaden creativity. Emphasis is placed upon acquiring strong technical skills, expressing meaning through images and developing unique creative vision.
The Visual Arts I course offers a structured approach to the fundamentals of art-making with emphasis placed on building skills in the media of drawing, painting, and ceramics. The student’s ability to “see” is developed in projects that expand awareness of our visual environment. The technical skill building that occurs in this course provides the basis for work that is covered in subsequent visual arts electives. Therefore, it is the prerequisite for all visual art classes.
