Visual Arts is a year-long studio class that replaces both Foundations of Drawing and Foundations of Design for advanced incoming art students recommended by their middle school art teacher. Art concepts are taught through hands-on projects, discussions, and activities. Visual Arts students should have an interest in creative art making, a desire to grow as an artist, the ability to work independently and meet deadlines. This course is a prerequisite for Painting I, Drawing I, Ceramics I, and Graphic & Computers Arts I.
