This is a Pass or Fail course which reinforces the knowledge acquired in Freshman Art Cycle. Each cycle is ONE QUARTER long. The class meets twice a week. In Sophomore Cycle, students continue learning about the Elements of Art through basic drawing techniques. Emphasis is placed on the use of value and form. Projects include a shaded still life (pencil) and a watercolor landscape.
Sketchbook assignments need to be completed by the due date specified on the handout for each marking period.
They include the following:
LINE DRAWING – Draw a tree around your home and outline in black marker-no color.
APPLYING COLOR – Draw an object with interesting shapes. Use colored pencils.
SHADING – Draw a vase or plant with flowers. Shade in pencil using the technique learned in class.
Sketchbooks will be checked on the specific dates.
