Visual Arts Comprehensive AVI1OI

COURSE DESCRIPTION This course is exploratory in nature, offering an overview of visual arts as a foundation for further study. Students will become familiar with the elements and principles of design and the expressive qualities of various materials by using a range of media, processes, techniques, and styles. Students will use the creative and critical analysis processes and will interpret art within a personal, contemporary, and historical context.

Students will look at how history affects art, develop skills, learn about the creative process, create artworks, and learn how to critique artwork in a positive and reflective manor.  Art challenges student’s to think in creative ways and explore a crucial part of their minds often not provoked in other areas.
