High School - Art 1

Students in Art 1 will become familiar with a variety of media as well as techniques, and skills available in the visual arts. The students will explore the elements and principles of design, and be expected to apply those elements and principles to their artwork throughout the year. The students will also learn the principles of drawing, color theory, painting techniques and Art history throughout the course as it applies to their lessons.
A developmental workbook or journal will be required throughout the class with rubrics/assessments being produced for each assignment, as well as research papers focusing on the great artists and themes throughout art history. Arts in the Middle Years Program (MYP) stimulate young imaginations, challenge perceptions, and develop creative and analytical skills.
