Art 1 is the foundation course for the high school art program and fulfills the one-credit Fine Arts graduation requirement. Students apply concepts about the elements of art and principles of design through a variety of experiences in learning the language of art. Assignments are designed to build creative problem solving skills through various studio practices in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, crafts and other art disciplines.
