Students will explore a variety of mediums and get a wide range of art experiences as well as be introduced to several artists, techniques, and art vocabulary. They will use critical thinking skills as they look at, discuss, and create art, giving them meaningful and fun experiences. They will explore our art galleries and create art inspired by the exhibits as well. Disciplines covered include clay, fiber art, mixed medium, graphic art, metal and wire art, and drawing. Some of the feature projects are torn metal collages inspired by Byzantine tapestries, steampunk entomology, Picasso-inspired ceramic vessels and Andy Warhol-styled “selfies.” Students will participate in the international Student Rebuild 2020 project.
