Our visual arts program teach the basic principles and build on skills and technique. We drive creativity to encourage all students to gain understanding of diverse artists and art periods as well as celebrate their hard work by featuring student pieces in community businesses and online platforms.
Art and Painting
In art courses, we develop drawing and painting skills with various media. In painting courses, students create portfolios and paint on canvas and other fabric.
In beginner painting courses, we develop mixed media, watercolor, acrylic painting techniques. In advanced courses, students create portfolios and paint on canvas and other fabric.
We have combined classes with Art Club and Student Council to create a fashion show and wearable art. We have also conducted student art shows on campus and have held art auctions. Most noticeably, we have students who won awards at VASE in Region and in State consistently over the past 5 years. We have even had fine art alumni create our new school seal.
Drawing and Design
Drawing courses build upon the basic foundations of drawing. Students will use more direct observation (learning to trust their eyes) skill set when in class, where they will be exposed to famous artists, use various drawing media and will be able to command the tools necessary to complete the assignments. During advanced classes, the students take a more centered role in pursuing how far they want to go with their skills.
The 2-D class is meant to build upon the elements and principles which were covered in the Art I course. Students will be using various media from simple pencil and pen to digital design media to push the levels of understanding. In Design II and III, the level of digital media grows and the students take on advanced projects.
