Spend time in the galleries as well as the art studios. In the galleries students focus on observational drawing inspired by artworks from different cultures and historical time periods.  Study techniques used by various artists and learn about art movements and their impact and importance.

In the studio further develop concepts and themes observed in the galleries through still lifes, landscapes, portraits, and abstraction. Formal elements such as shape, composition, line, color, rhythm, and pattern will be addressed.  Students are encouraged to make decisions in their art work and move towards a personal interpretation and expression while working in the medium of their choice (oil, acrylic, ink, collage.)

Students are responsible for providing their own supplies. View the supply list.
