Textbook: Discovering Drawing by Ted Rose

Exploring Painting by Gerald Brommer and Nancy Kinne

What Will You Learn In This Class?

This course combines Drawing I and Painting I. This course is designed to explore basic drawing and painting techniques and styles. We will study and apply the elements and principles of design. Students will also develop a greater understanding of two dimensional composition. You will review and demonstrate contour line, stippling, shading, crosshatching gridding, 1 & 2 point perspective, portraits and proportions. You will participate in both written and production activities that include art history and describing works of art using the elements and principles of design. Finally you will be introduced to the qualities and techniques of tempera, watercolors, acrylics, pastels and colored pencils.

Expectations for Students
