Full Year Course; 65 minutes
During this class, middle school students will learn about painting and drawing composition, color theory, proportion, planes, volume, tone/shading, continuous line, gesture, negative and positive space, and basic perspective. Students will also learn about different artists, art history, art movements, and style. Additionally, students are encouraged to think about an artist or technique they would like to learn about so it can be incorporated into the class. They will learn about which elements are important in the work, and then they will try it themselves. Students will experiment with a mix of materials such as graphite, oil crayons, pastels, charcoals, acrylics, tempera, watercolor, ink on canvas board, mylar, or canvas paper.
