Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12, PG
This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of painting with acrylics. Students learn to mix colors and create a sense of form, light, and depth on the canvas as they work from observation, using the still-life, landscape and other works of art for inspiration. The course encourages students to be playful and take risks with their work, experimenting with scale, paint application, and subject matter. Open to all students, this course does not have a prerequisite, although a previous course in drawing would be helpful.
Note: This is a two term course (fall and winter).
