General Art – Fine Arts A


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

General Art: Fine Arts will offer the opportunity for High School Students to develop a keen understanding of the Elements and Principles of Design and a practical knowledge of how to use a varied range of traditional artist materials.  Each week students will focus on a particular area of design, learning from a variety of historical and contemporary examples.  Students will complete art projects each week incorporating concepts discussed in class.  Additionally, student will take one trip to a museum or gallery of their choice during the semester.  All projects will be explored in a non-digital format.  Drawing, painting, sculpture, and other design formats will be explored.   This semester we focus on line, shape, form, value, color, space, and texture.

Who should take this?

  • Inexperienced artists/students who would like a general understanding of art to further round out their studies and skills.  (You do not need to be “talented”, you just need to be willing to try.)
  • Experienced art students who are looking to try new materials and advanced challenges.
  • Focused artists who would like to incorporate the elements and principles of design into current work.

Special Note
:  Students may opt to continue in the spring and should register for General Art: Fine Arts Focus B for new and continued material.
