This course develops a foundation in drawing and painting through the five strands of the Visual and Performing Arts Framework and the California State Visual Arts Content Standards.Through the application of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design students create a variety of unique art works that demonstrate foundational drawing and painting techniques. Students will analyze visual information, responding to artists’ works as well as their own, in written and oral form. Students will also demonstrate knowledge of the historical timeline of art and its affect on the development of society. They will also learn about career pathways as well as recognize the impact of new technology as a means to broaden and expand upon their artistic knowledge and skill.Due to the variation of course lengths; three dimensional art projects should be introduced when time allows. Required art vocabulary, reading and writing assignments are included in the course work.
