    Art 1

     
    Welcome to Art class! Art I has been developed to provide you with a solid foundation in the visual arts. During this course you will study and work with the elements of art (line, value, texture, shape, form, color and space) and the principles of design (unity, rhythm, balance, contrast, repetition, movement and emphasis). The elements are the tools we work with to create a piece of art, while the principles are the ways we incorporate the elements into the finished artwork.
     
    The course consists of hands-on projects which will apply one or more of the elements and principles of art. Projects will be done in a variety of media and art history will occasionally be included as part of the project. The evaluation of each project will be based on pre-determined criteria and a written self-evaluation will be completed prior to grading.
     
    Class work will include a daily sketchbook assignment, short exercises and assigned projects. Sketchbook assignments will be checked and graded weekly. Quizzes and tests may be given on the information covered in class for assessment and evaluation.

    As more advanced students you will be expected to produce more advanced artwork using depth, overlapping, scale, placement, detail, and value.

    Graphic Design 1 & 2

     
    Welcome to Graphic Design! This course has been developed to provide you with an in-depth study of graphic design as both an art form and as a marketable skill. You will be exploring the complex creative tools used in the advertising and design industry. We will be primarily using Photoshop and Illustrator to produce digital art and design projects to include in your portfolio. Projects will include but are not limited to: portfolio cover design, magazine layouts, CD or DVD cover design, letterhead, personal logo, self-portrait, branding and advertisements for organizations etc. Graphic Design II will further develop the skills you’ve acquired previously, including but not limited to; corporation re-branding, personal web page design with Adobe InDesign, community based initiatives, working with clients and independent/group projects.

     

    During this course you will also work with the elements of art (line, value, texture, shape, form, color and space) and the principles of design (unity, rhythm, balance, contrast, repetition, movement and emphasis). The elements are the tools we work with to create a successful design, while the principles are the ways we incorporate the elements into the finished composition. Often we will be collaborating together as a class or in small groups as design teams to brainstorm design ideas or projects. Projects will be done in a variety of media, both digital and tangible and outside research (homework) will occasionally be included as part of the project. The evaluation of each project will be based on pre-determined criteria and a written self-evaluation will be completed prior to grading.
