Fundamentals of Studio Art I
This studio art course offers a survey of methods and materials associated with student art creation. Focus will be on basic instruction in drawing, painting, printmaking, design, sculpture, pottery and contemporary crafts. Observational drawing and creative thinking will be stressed and new and unique materials will be explored. A variety of artists and artistic styles will be explored. Students will and reflect upon their work via digital portfolios and class critiques.
Approximately every two weeks for the first semester, a new topic, or enduring understanding, will be introduced and become the over-arching discussion point for that period. By it’s very recursive nature, these topics will be reintroduced during the second semester and deeper understanding and perceptions will be observed, discussed and synthesized into ongoing art making.
