Art I Course Description
A one-unit survey course designed for students in grades 9-12 who are enrolling in a high school art course for the first time. Provides a variety of experiences that build on the concepts, techniques, and use of media introduced in the middles school program. Generally laboratory in nature, Art I explores and gives experience in two-dimensional (drawing, painting, printmaking) and three dimensional (sculptures, ceramics, textiles) formats and integrates art history, design principles, and aesthetic criticism and response. Advanced Art classes are offered after the completion of Art I.
