Art Studio I
In Art Studio I students will study the Elements of Design begun in the Grammar years, or any other instructional context. As students enter the “dialectic stage” of their art education they will delve more deeply into understanding the Principles of Design, the “logic” of good art. Students will also read and discuss excerpts from Christian authors on the biblical worldview of Art – both its purpose and history. Students will be introduced to the tools and techniques used in Drawing, Pen and Ink, Charcoal, Pastels, and Painting (acrylic and watercolor). In addition to their projects, students will keep a sketchbook. Instructions will include observational drawing exercises, viewing great artwork from the past, step by step demonstrations, and personal critiques on their projects. This is a studio course and time will be provided in class for working on projects within a learning community of other student artists. Homework will average 2-3 hours per week.View Art Studio I Syllabus
