Art Fundamentals

  • Grades 9-12

    This introductory course to art is designed to offer students the basic fundamental skills of art making: the elements of art and principles of design, color theory, drawing, 3D Design and art criticism. Students will understand the scope of art history's importance and its impact on society. These skills serve as a foundation for the study of art in the advanced classes: Studio Art, Honors and AP Studio Art, Media and Techniques 1, 2, and 3.  The Art Fundamentals class must be taken in the freshman year if a student wishes to prepare for an art career through the Studio Art electives, as it is the prerequisite class for all other art classes. (Not a prerequisite for the Academy of Art - Graphics/Studio Strand)
