Freshman Art Cycle

This is an introduction to Art and the Elements of Art such as line, shape, color, value, form, space and texture.   Students explore the use of various materials and techniques as they learn to identify and use each element.  Projects include landscapes based on Georges Seurat’s Pointillism and monotypes (one of a kind prints) depicting a still life with fruit and abstracts.

Each cycle is ONE QUARTER long. This a Pass or Fail course which meets twice a week. Students are required to have a 9 x 12 sketchbook for specific homework assignments and classwork.  The sketchbook is usually due a week after the start of the cycle.
