Terms: 2 (Fall and Winter)
Grades : 9,10,11,12,PG
This is a two-term course but students with previous experience in drawing or painting may ADD it for one term this winter.
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 class 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 class in drawing would be helpful.
