Foundations of Art 

This year-long course offers a solid preparation for experienced art students and a non-threatening experience for the non-art major. Foundations class teaches the elements and principles of design as they are applied to the many art disciplines. Students will be exposed to all the Visual Arts Content Standards within this course. Student activities will include basic color theory with painting, basic drawing skills, three-dimensional projects, and initial development of a studio arts portfolio. As a “survey” course, this class will enable the student to make informed choices in selecting additional art courses for their continued study.
