What will students be doing in Studio Art?
Throughout the school year in Studio Art students will be exploring multiple artists, art movements, events through Art History, and, "The Elements and Principles of Art." All of this will be happening while students are creating their own artwork and building a well-rounded portfolio. Many techniques, processes and art media will be investigated, including; Photography, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Graphic Design, and Sculpture. By the end of this course students will be leaving with the understanding and basic skills needed to create a variety of artworks utilizing multiple media.
