The purpose of this class is to help students become knowledgeable about the Visual Arts and how the Arts have been and are a vital part of our cultural heritage. Students will learn the Elements and Principles of Art and improve their skills by making artworks using a variety of mediums and techniques. We will discuss Art History (the role of art and artists in society) and Art Criticism (how to evaluate works of art). In addition, we will discuss how art affects our daily lives, our thoughts and our feelings.


  • Be on time
  • Be prepared
  • Be responsible and clean up after yourself
  • Be good listeners
  • Be safe
  • Be respectful of the equipment, supplies, other students and their artwork

In art, we focus on one main rule: No one has the right to interfere with the learning safety or well being of others.
