High School Art
Draw/Paint I is offered at the high school level.
Draw / Paint I meets five days a week.
Draw/Paint I is designed to be a foundation for advanced art courses.
Understanding Elements of Art and Principles of Art is emphasized as a basis for composition of projects.
Drawing, painting, two- and three-dimensional design are some of the areas the student will explore as well as learning about art throughout history.
A willingness to create, rather than talent or previous experience, is the most important requirement of this course.
Draw/Paint I satisfies the Fine Arts requirement for graduation.
