    Studio in Art

    Studio in Art is the comprehensive foundation course for further study in the Visual Arts. Students will explore art and learn foundation skills through a variety of media. Students will produce both 2-D and 3-D works of art and become familiar with the historical foundations of art and its impact on cultures. Students will continue to develop their ability to speak and write about art works using art content specific vocabulary.

    Transfer Goal

    Takes risks in order to learn and grow, along with using feedback to refine thinking or actions when creating/developing pieces of work.
