This is a middle level art class that applies the introductory skills learned in Art 1 to the exploration of color theory, 3-dimensional design/sculpture, printing basics, and art appreciation. These new and higher level art skills enable students to formulate a personal style and preference in his/her art experience. The effective use of tempera, watercolor, oil, and acrylic paints will be stressed. Hand building and wheel basics will be explored in clay. Besides further experience of basic realistic drawing skills, abstract styles of art production will be expected. The elements and principles of design, as well as an indepth look at lost arts such as paper marbling and Art History will be covered as well.
