    Art 1 is a Foundations Course. We will be focusing on Art Making, Art History, and Art Criticism throughout the semester, with a special emphasis on foundational art techniques such as drawing, painting, and basic sculpture.


    Students enrolled in the course should have access to all course documents, videos, and other information via Canvas. 


    This semester, students will be supplied with an Art Kit of basic materials that we'll be using. Blended Learners (hybrid students), will need to bring these Kits to and from school with them, as there will not be communal supplies available in the classroom as part of our efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. All students, Blended or Distance Learners, will be expected to return their Kit at the end of the semester. 


    Each student will also have a paper Portfolio Folder. Blended Learners will need to use these to carry their current project back & forth. Distance Learners may use theirs as  a place to store their projects throughout the semester. 


    Parents please feel free to join our Remind group for updates on upcoming due dates, reminders for projects, and for an easy and secure way to communicate with me with any questions you may have. Email me or ask your student for the class code!
