This is a creative art course that focuses on drawing and painting. In keeping with this attention on two-dimensional work, students typically work with several media (such as pen-and-ink, pencil, chalk, watercolor, tempera, acrylic, charcoal, and so on). There is much variation through the different mediums. Students will develop their identity through their drawing, and are encouraged to convey his/her own ideas. Students will also study art history through contemporary, realistic, abstract, and figurative developments in drawing/painting.
