 Hello! Welcome to art. Throughout the year we will be learning about a variety of artists and movements. We will also be  exploring a variety of contemporary and design issues. Throughout the year, students will explore a variety of medias, identify and develop visual learning capacities while creating art! All projects will facilitate the "Elements and Principals of Art" and also be discussed through assignments, critiques, and class discussions.  I look forward to a great year with all students!
